Practical Government Benchmark - Taylor Tomasco
This process was not difficult but it was a little confusing at first. I kept forgetting that some things could be represented by more than one branch. For example, when you get your licsence you are interacting with the executive branch, but there is a law (legislative branch) that states what age you are allowed to get your licsence. The law was most likely made after a course case (judicial branch) was held. The most time consuming part was the judicial branch. I am very familiar with different laws and different parts of the executive branch, but I did not know names of specific court cases that allowed these laws or functions to happen.
As I get older I imagine to become even more familiar with the branches. I will have to do more paper work, and have to understand some elaborate processes. With my current understanding of the branches I will definitely be able to distinguish which branch of the government I am interacting with. I am leaving this class with Ms. Laufenberg more than happy. I don't only remember the branches of the government, but I understand them as well.
