Charlie wilson's war worksheet
This was a worksheet that the class did on a movie called "Charlie Wilson's War" and it was about a congressman who did lots of stuff to make things possible for a war between Russia and Afghanistan. The questions were relevant to the movie and went in deeper than most basic movie questions. The reason why our teacher, Mr. Chin, had us watch this movie was because the chapter that we were going through was about congressmen and how it works in there. The way they run things and how they get people to vote for them and how they pass bills. This was important to me because I felt it was essential to know how our government is working and to further understand it so that I know that my future will be okay. I learned so many things that I have never even heard of before, I was never really one for politics so I had no idea how this whole system worked but now that I know it makes a lot more sense and puts me at ease in a way.
We just recently started learning about the different duties that the President has as far as the name for them and the things he does within each name. We took notes on this and then ended up having to find examples of each of these roles online. I got a check plus on it so I'm sure I did a good job. It's important to know what your president does and how he does it because there are many different things to do within the presidency and they are categorized into different names like how the Head of State part has to due with foreign meetings and being on good terms with other countries. I learned a lot about the duties of our president and it showed me that there is actually a lot to do and it's probably a lot harder than we think. Many presidents have their own way of running the country and most of them explain how dangerous and hectic it is, but if you really know what you're doing you should be alright.
This was probably in the beginning where we were learning about the economics of society and how everything works as far as supply and demand and how it effects our government and society. This was a review sheet for a test that we were going to take on that chapter and most of this stuff was found in our books so we just looked through it to find the answers. It's important because we all need to know what is like in the economy and to make sure we know how to survive in different conditions of the economy. Money is a very important factor in everyone's lives and we all need to make sure we are doing things right and getting our things together correctly. I never really knew a lot about supply and demand and how everything works, but then again I don't know a whole lot about economics and the government so a lot of this was new to me. But it was still pretty interesting and fundamental to know.
