This is actually the section that I redid last year. In the video, you want to show students actively engaged in a lesson in which you are the primary focus. You could certainly do this with 'how a bill becomes a law'. It is definitely considered 'history'. Keep in mind that the point of this video and entry is to show you in action with your students. You calling on them or involving them, but directed by you.
A lesson where the students are writing bills and working together would be great for the other video portfolio section where you need to show students working in groups. Problem solving lessons are great for that section.
I recommend taking a look at the questions you will have to answer in the portfolio section and read everything before you film and decide on a final lesson.

Thanks for the response.
I am a new candidate, actually in EA (early adolescense), but I tryed
the AYA because the entries seem similar and there is nothing in EA.
I had a question about Entry 2, the whole class video on "Civic
Competence". It says we should use a "history concept, topic", etc.
and relate it to current real world events. I did my constitution
lesson with "how a bill becomes a law" and was going to do my entry
on the lesson where students research problems and write a bill to
solve the problem. We discuss and vote on each bill. I wanted another
opinion on whether this would be considered "history", I am beginning
to doubt myself. Any ideas?
I think there is a way to start a private group that cuts down on the
spam, I've heard of one from a friend who is taking the ELA boards. I
can look into that if you are interested.

Have you received any other replies? Maybe we can start a new group.
