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.

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.

How are enumerated powers, reserved, powers and concurrent powers similar to and different from another

Delegated (or enumerated) powers are those powers specifically granted to the federal government by the United States Constitution.

Reserved powers are powers not specifically granted to the federal government, and thus reserved for the states.

Concurrent powers are powers where both the federal and state government will have involvement.

Some examples:

Delegated (or enumerated) powers include such things as the power to coin/print money, the power to establish and impose tariffs, and the power to regulated trade with foreign nations and trade/commerce between states.

Reserved powers include such things as educational systems (schools) and curriculum taught, regulation of industry and trade within a state, and punishments for crimes under state law.  (Note, for instance, that some states have a death penalty for those convicted of murder, and other states do not have a death penalty.)  

Concurrent powers include things that both the federal government and state governments do in their own respective domains.  One examples would be establishing courts and prison systems (for state cases and federal cases).  Another example would be taxation -- both the federal government and state governments have authority to assess taxes.  Another would be holding elections -- national elections under federal supervision, other elections on the state level under state supervision.

Identify the artistic style being described. Although the artists emphasized light and used short brushstrokes, they wanted to show powerful emotions in their artwork.

Answer:

Post-impressionism

Explanation:

The post-Impressionism was an art movement that, following the Impressionism, focused on showing the subjective vision of the artist instead of using idealized and symmetrical forms, while using short brushstrokes and light and vivid palettes in the canvas. The main difference between these two movements is that the Post-impressionism artists sought to convey in their artwork their own personal memories, emotions, and thoughts: looking at an artist's canvas was equal to look at the artist soul and mind in a deeper level. The Impressionism, on the other hand, focused on showing the outside world of the artist, the passage of time, the weather, the environment.
