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.....

How would an historian best respond to the comment, "History is simply a series of events in chronological order."

I believe the answer is: B:True, with fascinating information of who, what, where, why, and possibly some bias and perspective of the writer that we can explore.

In order to examine a historical event, a good historian would always try to see how the scene unfolding from the perspective of all parties involved in the event. Reading the recollection from only one party would most likely provide us with biased information that painted themselves in a positive ways.

What made trench warfare in WWI inevitable - why was the trench a natural reaction to the weapons of the era? What made WWI trench fighting especially terrible? Why, when asked, do the majority of historians say that WWI would be the war they LEAST want to fight in? If you were a general, and you wanted to BREAK the stalemate and attack through the trench systems, what strategies might you use? What tools might you need? Be Creative! No idea is too crazy!

Trench warfare was inevitable because there is no greater defense against gas and artillery. Or at least not at the time. Trench fighting was terrible because not only do you have to worry about an arty shell hitting your bunk, but you get to worry about things like trenchfoot, and pneumonia. In the occasion that I wanted to break a stalemate and attack through the trenches, i would equip all my soldiers with some sort of close range automatic weapon, I would get a fighter plane, and have them drop napalm on the enemy trench. Then, as a cleanup, i would send an entire platoon, in groups of 6, into the enemy line, and i would go with them to sweep up the trench
