    • Chapter 5. U.S. Congress (Part 1): Structure, Membership, & Role
    • Chapter 6. U.S. Congress (Part 2): Bill to Law Process
    • Chapter 7. U.S. Judicial Branch: Supreme Court and Lower Federal Courts
  • Delaware:
    • Chapter 8. The Delaware Constitution
    • Chapter 9. The Delaware General Assembly

Executive Producer of the series is Carol D. Jones, Chair of the Civics Committee of the League of Women Voters of Delaware. Carol was assisted by League members Janet Orlando and Martha Rothenberg as technical consultants, as well as Rob Waters of W Films and Darryl Jones of Darryl Jones Films.

The video series is intended as an easily accessible, free educational resource for area schools, libraries, and the local community.
