Subject: Study Skills
If a student has a hard time staying still, what would be a good way to get them to study?
In many cases, students that have a hard time staying still have excess energy they are trying to burn. Some of the best ways to work with one of these students is to use their energy in the study session. Turn whatever subject we are learning about into a game that involves movement. This could be as basic as using our hands to clap every time we answer a question to creating a full on sports game out of what we are studying. Including topics students are interested in also helps in these situations.
Subject: US Government and Politics
Why did the Articles of Confederation fail?
In short, the Articles were too weak and could not be enforced. The Articles of Confederation made the individual states, such as New York, more powerful than the central government. This meant that each state could enact different rules (laws), issue their own money, and refuse to pay federal taxes when asked. Due to such chaos, the United States became weak in every area and would have collapsed if a new government was not formed.
Subject: US History
Why did George Washington not accept a third term as president of the United States?
There were a few reasons for his decision, however, one stuck out the most. The United States had just ended a bloody war with Great Britain and Washington, along with most of the founding fathers, were fearful of the new government becoming too powerful. Washington, being the cautious man he was, did not want to become or to be seen as a king or tyrant. To avoid this, he denied a third term of the presidency creating a long tradition of presidents only serving up to two terms until it was broken by FDR in the 1930s.
