Liz, something else I've discovered helpful is basic info on the main
government bodies that surround us. I created this, which I go over very
quickly in one of my workshops. I think it first occurred to me when I was
asked how many Senators Oregon has.   :-)  And, many people seem to have no
idea what Metro is.
Of course, the answers are city, county, Metro, state, federal.

Dear Libs-Or folks,

Looking to help patrons understand the different branches of government,
especially the Executive Branch?
This resource was shared on the GOVDOC-L list on Wednesday, and promises to
be useful to everyone, not just their students. Thanks to Mary Whisner for
her work, and to Peggy Jarrett for the reference.

As noted at GOVDOC-L: 

"The University of Washington School of Law is currently offering a class on
presidential power.  Interest was so high - and not just from the law school
- that one of our research librarians created a public guide, 


The guide is updated daily as class readings are added and events unfold.
For example, a lot of material, including news & commentary, was just added
under the Case Studies - Immigration,

Mary Whisner, the guide author, is happy to have this resource shared
widely, so feel free to pass it along to your users.""
