Long Description: 
This episode of GED Connection explores what it means to be an American citizen as well as takes a look at how American government is structured. For the social studies portion of the GED test it's important to be familiar with the foundations of American government. A good way to prepare is by reading the Constitution and some Supreme Court documents. On the test there will likely be questions about a major U.S. document like a voter registration form. Major points discussed in this program are: the Articles of Confederation, the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, the Bill of Rights, the right to vote, and Brown vs. the Board of Education.
