Jean Studies for his Citizenship Test, Part 2
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "I'm so full from eating all that pizza," Jean groaned. "But I want to keep studying for my citizenship test. This stuff is interesting."
 
2     "Okay, let's keep going," Rob said. "What's the next topic?"
 
3     "The structure of the government," Jean replied. "How many branches of government are there in the U.S.?"
 
4     "Nothing like getting right to it," Rob teased. "There are three branches: the executive, legislative, and judicial."
 
5     "Who is the head of the executive branch?" Jean quizzed.
 
6     "The president of the United States," Rob said confidently.
 
7     "And what does he do?" asked Jean.
 
8     "Well, he pretty much runs the country," Rob replied. "He meets with important people from other countries. He signs bills so that they can become laws. He can also veto a bill."
 
9     "What does veto mean?" Jean asked.
 
10     "It means to stop a bill from becoming a law," Rob said. "The president is also the commander-in-chief of the military. This means that he runs the armed forces. We vote for a new president every four years in November. The president can serve two terms in office. Lots of times, we elect the same president to serve a second term."
 
11     "Wow, the president has a lot of responsibility," Jean said. "Does he have anyone to help him?"
