Reminder!  Big Test Tomorrow!  You need to make sure you complete the review questions and have them when you walk in the room.  For those who need this, here are the essay question choices:

1. Name and explain two implied powers and the expressed powers from which they come.

2. Congress passes a law directing all exports of tractors to be sent to San Francisco, California.  After paying a tax, they will be exported from there.  The law was declared illegal.  Explain two reasons why.

Good luck studying.  If you have any questions, please email me.

Now that you have read and answered questions about Article 1, section 1-10 of the Constitution, lets break it down to understand it a little bit better.  As you watch the video below, take notes on each of the sections of Article 1.  You can do this on a sheet of paper, but be sure to divide it according to sections.  The notes need not be complex...bullet points are fine.  You should have at least 3 bullet points for each section. This will be due at the beginning of class on Monday, September 21.

Homework and Reminder--

First, please make sure you bring your CHARGED chromebook to class tomorrow 9/3/15.  You will be taking an online assessment.  If you don't have a chromebook, you need to either get one from Chrome Depot or borrow one from a friend....figure it out...you have 24 hours to solve your problem.

Second, you must have the Federalism--Who has the Power sheet AND the Venn diagram on page 14 of your packet done for tomorrow.  

Have a great evening!

Happy Friday everyone...

I hope you had a good day and that your weekend is just as good.  Please make sure that you finish the Constitution hunt you worked on in class today.  It is due at the beginning of the period on Monday.  

Thanks--see you Monday.
