What are "checks and balances" when referring to the three branches of the federal government?
When the Constitution was written, the Framers set up the three branches so that power was distributes among the branches, but also so that each of the branches had power, or "checks" over each other. For example, Congress has the power to create a law. However, as a check on that power, the President has to sign that law into action or the President can veto that law. As a check on this power of the President, Congress can override a presidential veto with a 2/3 majority.
Describe Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is based on the idea that certain needs need to be met before a child can attain other needs. A child's basic needs must be met first before a teacher can ever hope for the student to learn. The most basic needs are food, sleep, shelter, and safety. If a child is hungry or does not feel safe, there is no possibility they will be able to learn effectively. The needs in Maslow's Hierarchy work their up to self-actualization, which where an individual's needs are met sufficiently and can learn and function at their best.
