The West Virginia Constitution

West Virginia became a state in 1863, following its separation from the commonwealth of Virginia brought on, ultimately, by the Civil War. During its history, five state constitutions have governed West Virginia: three as part of Virginia and then two following West Virginias creation. In The West Virginia State Constitution, Robert M. Bastress provides a historical and legal analysis of each of West Virginias five constitutions; from its statehood and first constitution in 1863 to the present. An article-by-article analytical commentary on the 1872 constitution and its amendments comprise most of the book, while a table of cases, bibliographical essay, and index complete this excellent research tool designed for anyone interested in West Virginias constitutional history. Previously published by Greenwood, this title has been brought back in to circulation by Oxford University Press with new verve.

The West Virginia State Constitution

The West Virginia State Constitution provides a review of the history and development of West Virginia's Constitution and an updated section-by-section analysis of its meaning. The State has had two constitutions, the original that was ratified in 1863 and the current one that was initially adopted in 1872. Both were rooted in the several Virginia Constitutions that preceded them but also included major reforms that emerged out of ongoing disputes between the western and eastern regions of antebellum Virginia. Amendments in the thirties and between 1968 and 1982 modernized the Constitution. This history is recounted in Part I of the book. This second edition provides section-by-section analysis that describes the origins and evolutions of the provisions and, more importantly, summarizes the interpretations given to them by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals over more than 150 years of the State's existence. The text reduces the case law to readily grasped concepts and cites the leading cases. A useful and convenient table of cases is provided, and a bibliography to facilitate more extensive or specific research is included.

West Virginia Politics and Government

West Virginia Politics and Government offers the only recent study of politics in the Mountain State. Combining new empirical information about political behavior with a close examination of the capacity of the state?s government, this second edition is a comprehensive and pointed study of the ability of the state?s government to respond to the needs of a largely rural and relatively low-income population. The authors discuss public demands on state government, the shaping of the political agenda by interest groups, elections and the role of political parties, and the influence of the federal government on the state?s political and administrative functions. The book also examines the nature of the state?s constitution and the role of governmental institutions, including the state legislature, the governor, and the state bureaucracy, in the making of public policy and the construction of a state budget, as well as the judiciary and local governments. The concluding chapter assesses the future of governance in the state.

Exploring West Virginia Through Project Based Learning

Exploring West Virginia through Project-Based Leaning includes 50 well-thought-out projects designed for grades 3-5. In assigning your students projects that dig into West VirginiaÕs geography, history, government, economy, current events, and famous people, you will deepen their appreciation and understanding of West Virginia while simultaneously improving their analytical skills and ability to recognize patterns and big-picture themes. Project-based learning today is much different than the craft-heavy classroom activities popular in the past. Inquiry, planning, research, collaboration, and analysis are key components of project-based learning activities today. However, that doesnÕt mean creativity, individual expression, and fun are out. They definitely arenÕt! Each project is designed to help students gain important knowledge and skills that are derived from standards and key concepts at the heart of academic subject areas. Students are asked to analyze and solve problems, to gather and interpret data, to develop and evaluate solutions, to support their answers with evidence, to think critically in a sustained way, and to use their newfound knowledge to formulate new questions worthy of exploring. While some projects are more complex and take longer than others, they all are set up in the same structure. Each begins with the central project-driving questions, proceeds through research and supportive questions, has the student choose a presentation option, and ends with a broader-view inquiry. Rubrics for reflection and assessments are included, too. This consistent framework will make it easier for you assign projects and for your students to follow along and consistently meet expectations. Encourage your students to take charge of their projects as much as possible. As a teacher, you can act as a facilitator and guide. The projects are structured such that students can often work through the process on their own or through cooperation with their classmates.

Saluting the Flag  West Virginia State Board of Education v  Barnette

During World War II, American children who were Jehovah's Witnesses refused to salute the flag because it conflicted with their religion. In this riveting book, award-winning author Susan Dudley Gold delves into the issues behind the Supreme Court case. An impressive victory for the First Amendment, especially in time of war, the decision established that government cannot compel Americans to participate in symbolic speech such as a flag salute. Although the case involved members of the Jehovah's Witnesses, the decision embraced freedom of expressions as well as freedom of religion.
