About last night's homework: Got Questions?

Today we'll keep looking at Rights of the Accused (528-535) and the assignment we started Thursday in class. Find your notes from Thursday's class so we can move efficiently through it and finish quickly. 

When finished we'll continue to look at last Friday's assignment on the 8th Amendment and capital punishment. The following articles all address different aspects of the topic. Read one of them, then be prepared to discuss what your learned with others. 
11) American Citizenship (21.4) pp 561-567; Due 11/16
1a) jus soli
1b) jus sanguinis
1c) naturalization
1d) expatriation

2a) How did the 14th Amendment attempt to clarify the question of citizenship? (561)
2b) Under what circumstances can a person involuntarily lose his or her citizenship? (564)
