I really need help please thank you so much Your teacher needs help! Before beginning the lessons on the U.S. Constitution, he asked his students to write essays on what they already knew. Now he has to correct those essays. Read the first essay and write a corrected version. The first two statements are correct. Fix the rest. You may list the corrections as bullet points. Then write a summary sentence about the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787 by the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After ratification by 11 states (only 9 were required), the new United States government began operation in March of 1789. The Constitution establishes five branches of government that include the Congress, the president, the courts, the military, and the postal service. The Congress has two parts: a House of Senators and the Representatives. Each calls for two members and two alternates from each state. The president is responsible for introducing and passing all new laws, but the representatives can veto them. The highest court is called the Court of Special Appeals. The judges serve 10-year terms and are elected. Unlike the judges, the president is appointed by the Congress. The Constitution can be changed by a process called altering it. The first ten alterations to the Constitution are known together as the States’ Rights Acts. Alterations to the Constitution must be approved by half the states. Each branch of the government operates independently of the other. There is no system for separation of powers, which makes the government free of any checks and balances. Judicial review of whether laws are constitutional is possible only when the president asks for it.

Because we use this to help us stay on track with the money system.....

Which of the following statements best explains the difference between a right and a responsibility? A right refers to something you have to do, and a responsibility is something you can do. A right is a privilege granted by the Constitution, and a responsibility is the action taken to engage in that right. A responsibility is a privilege granted by the government, and a right is the action taken to engage in that responsibility. A responsibility is based on a person’s values or beliefs, whereas a right is based on the values and beliefs of the nation.

The correct answer is D) A responsibility is based on a person's values or beliefs, whereas a right is based on the values and beliefs of a nation.

For example, a person may feel it is their personal responsibility to attend a church every Sunday morning. This is an action people take based on their own values or belief systems. On the other hand, the freedom to practice whatever religion you want is a right. This is due to the fact that it is part of the first amendment of the US Constitution and shows a value that our nation holds as sacred.

States were nullifying voter applications due to errors and omissions on the forms. C. Voters did not understand how to accurately fill out voter registration forms. D. Voters were refusing to complete some sections of voter registration forms.

The following conclusion can be drawn based on the excerpt:

A. States were intentionally placing errors on voter registration applications to keep African Americans from voting.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964, is talking about people whose right to vote is being denied. The fact that the act states that no one should be denied the right to vote due to errors or omissions in required records to vote, demonstrates that this was being a common excuse to prevent African Americans from voting. A way to stop states from doing this, was simply to pass an act in which this method was not longer useful to prevent some people from voting.

Jim Crow laws were dominant in Southern states. These laws resulted in the development of segregated schools, public facilities, etc. These laws essentially limited the political and economic opportunities of African-Americans. This helps to explain why so many people left the south.

The emperor of the Byzantine Empire was in favor of the use of religious icons, but the pope and bishops in the West were opposed, and excommunicated those who supported this. d. The Patriarch, as the religious authority in the Byzantine Empire, passed a law criminalizing iconoclasts, while the religious leaders in Western Empire supported iconoclasts and their religious ideas.

The correct answer is A) The Byzantine emperor was considered to be the highest political and religious figure. In the Western Empire, the highest political and religious figures were two different people.

The political and religious ideas of the Byzantine Empire compared with the Western Empire in that the Byzantine emperor was considered to be the highest political and religious figure. In the Western Empire, the highest political and religious figures were two different people.

In the western part of the Roman Empire, the Emperor was the ruler and decided on military, politic, and economic matters, but in religion, it was the Pope the ruler of the Church.

The issue regarding religion that faced the Byzantine Empire was the spread of Islam. The religion that became the strongest rival of Christianity in that time was Islam.

Islam spread basically by conquests, trade, and evangelization during the Byzantine Empire times. Traders and conquerors took Islam from the Arabian peninsula to North Africa, the Middle East as far as the Iberian Peninsula. The Ottoman Turks, who were Muslims, spread Islam in the Byzantine Empire.
