Americans are PANICKED Call To Order How are these pictures similar?
How are they different?
What purposes of government are shown in these pictures? Protecting Individual Rights Maintaining Order Sometimes, purposes of gov't can conflict with eachother... Maintaining Order
Making Economic Decisions
National Security Protecting Individual Rights
Providing Public Services Can you think of an example? Today, we're going to look at a big event in American History and examine how that relates to the Purposes of Gov't How can the government Protect National Security against terrorism? Create a chart in your notebook That looks like this... 1. Improve Security at Airports Mohammed Atta, one of the hijackers, is shown walking through security here... How could We Have Stopped Him? 2. Arrest Suspected Terrorists What's the BENEFIT? What's the DISADVANTAGE? Okay then, let's GO TO WAR! What's the danger of this way of thinking? Now, take a couple minutes with your groups and for each policy;
Create a list of Benefits
Create a list of Disadvantages SCENE 1
After the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and drew the United States into World War II, the U.S. government forced over 100,000 Japanese-Americans (American citizens who are from Japan) into camps called “War Relocation Camps”. They were held there for years and not allowed to leave because the U.S. government was afraid that they could be spies. SCENE 2
The Ku Klux Klan planned a march through the streets of Atlanta on February 12, 2010. Local police are concerned about a riot breaking out when local residents confront the demonstrators, so they’ve revoked the protest permit and threatened to arrest any individuals who attempt to parade through the area.
Baltimore City police have noticed an increase in minor traffic violations such as speeding and running red lights. They proposed a plan to install traffic cameras at every intersection in the city, but it was determined that these devices were too expensive and that it would cost too much taxpayer money to enforce the laws in this way.
Former Mayor Sheila Dixon tried to solve a budget crisis that the city was having. In order to cut government spending and save some taxpayer money, she decided that trash collection would only happen once a week, instead of twice a week. SCENE 5
During World War I and World War II, the government needed to get war supplies to its soldiers as fast as possible. Trains and ships that would usually have been used for passengers were instead used to transport ammunition and food to soldiers on the front lines so that they could keep fighting. SCENE 6
The U.S. government supplies assistance to families in the form of WIC Checks in order to help people who can’t afford food. However, to make sure that the money is used correctly, they require recipients to register with the government program and they are only allowed to buy specific kinds of food with the government funds. Read the Scene with your group and determine which two purposes of government are in conflict.

Choose one person from your group to read the scenario to the class.
Choose another person from your group to report on your findings. Now, take a look at the speech that President Obama gave from the White House two weeks ago!
