Last night's homework was to read Chapter 24.3: Counties, Towns, etc. (pages 643-648, questions 1, 2,3,5) We'll start there, with any questions you might have. Be ready to ask them. 

Then, we'll go over yesterday's in-class assignment. Open your copy of the State & Local Government assignment, and get ready with some questions.

Finally, we'll go back to Monday's assignment about the State's Executive branch.


No homework tonight.
