I’m trying to learn for my History class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

The Congress

Watch The Congress Video

This video presents a detailed looked at the history and daily operation of the Congress of the United States. After watching the video, do the following:

  1. Identify one historic fact that you were unaware of. Discuss the impact of this event and explain how it relates to the United States today.
  2. Identify one example or comment made by a historian or scholar that challenges your current understanding of how Congress operates. Be specific in your identification including the specifics (name of expert, quote and/or event and explain how it adds to your understanding the role and function of Congress).

In order to receive credit, you are required to:

  • Submit a discussion thread divided into paragraphs following the aforementioned topics.
    • Penalties for not following this requirement will range from 5 to 10 points.
  • Provide comprehensive answers by using the video and the textbook as primary sources of information.
    • Penalties for not using the textbook as the primary source of information will range from 5 to 20 points
  • Submit your discussion in at least 250 words.
    • Penalties for not following the length requirement for any response/reply will range from 5 to 30 points.
  • Reply to at least three classmates in at least 70 words per reply.
    • In your reply, identify something you had not previously been aware of or something which challenges you to think differently.
    • Each reply will be worth five (5) points.
  • Submit all discussion posts within the due date.
    • No late submission will be allowed or graded unless it involves a documented emergency or accommodation.
  • Avoid copy-and-paste and unnecessary quotations.
    • Use paraphrasing instead of quoting.
      • You should use a quote only when the same idea cannot be stated differently or when doing so would diminish its academic value. The latter is not applicable in our case and the former is rarely needed.
  • Provide, when paraphrasing, in-text citations and references in the APA writing format.
    • Penalties for not providing in-text citations and/or references will range from 10 to 40 points.
