Chapter 3, Section 1 An Outline of the Constitution The Constitution sets out the basic principles upon which government in the United States was built. The Constitution is a fairly brief document. The Constitution is organized into eight sections: the Preamble and seven articles. The original document is followed by 27 amendments. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 Articles of the Constitution

Section Preamble Subject States the purpose of the Constitution Article I Legislative branch Article II Executive branch Article III Judicial branch Article IV Relations among the States and with the National

Government Amending the Constitution Article V Article VI Article VII Go To Section: National debts, supremacy of national law, and oaths of office Ratifying the Constitution 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 Three of the Basic Principles The principle of popular sovereignty asserts that the people are the source of any and all government

power, and government can exist only with the consent of the governed. The principle of limited government states that government is restricted in what it may do, and each individual has rights that government cannot take away. Separation of powers is the principle in which the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government are three independent and coequal branches of government. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 More of the Basic Principles Checks and balances is the system that allows the

legislative, executive, and judicial branches to check, or restrain, the actions of one another. The principle of judicial review consists of the power of a court to determine the constitutionality of a governmental action. Federalism is a system of government in which the powers of government are divided between a central government and several local governments. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 SECTION 2

Informal Amendment How has basic legislation changed the Constitution over time? What powers do the executive branch and the courts have to amend the Constitution? What role do party politics and custom have in shaping the Federal Government? Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 3 Informal Amendment Processes Informal amendment is the process by which over time many changes have been made in the

Constitution which have not involved any changes in its written word. The informal amendment process can take place by: (1) the passage of basic legislation by Congress; (2) actions taken by the President; (3) key decisions of the Supreme Court; (4) the activities of political parties; and (5) custom. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 3 Executive Action and Court Decisions Executive Action Presidential actions have
