GPB Videos of state government

Legislative http://www.gpb.org/georgiastories/stories/legislative_process

Executive http://www.gpb.org/georgiastories/stories/executive_branch

Judicial http://www.gpb.org/georgiastories/the-judicial-branch

Since this last video was made, the Georgia General Assembly increased the number of judges to the Supreme Court to 9.

In your textbook there is a two page spread at the end of each chapter that sums up the standards.  It would be a good resource, too. (Remember, you wrote your password to the online textbook on Georgia Day.)
