Last night's assignment was Chapter 20, Section 2 (521-526) and to create an outline of key ideas discussed there. 

Your outline might look something like this:

  1. 13th Amendment

  3. 3rd Amendment
  4. 4th Amendment
    1. Probable Cause
    2. Automobiles
    3. Exclusionary Rule

Today you'll be using the information you collected to share and present your understanding of a section or two of a shared slideshow. 

Begin by opening the shared document 

Working alone or with a partner, type your information from your assigned section(s) on your slides. Try to follow the 6 x 6 rule when creating your slide (no more than 6 lines per slide; no more than 6 words per line)

Be prepared to explain your slide to the class when you are done.

If you finish before others, you should start tonight's homework:
Open a NEW TEMPLATE from Google Docs called Ch 20.3 Terms. Type your answers in the document. If you would like a printed version of the assignment to take with you, let Mr Knowles know.
