Day 45--

Last night's assignment dealt with the way the President of the United States is elected, both in the time that the Constitution was written, and how it's changed over time, through amendment, and through common practice. If you have questions about the homework, let's talk about them before getting back to yesterday's notes.

Today we'll be continuing our notes to review some of that information, with an eye toward improving on your quiz from the other day when you're all done. 
Follow along, fill in the blanks, and ask questions when you have them to come up with the notes you'll need to get all the questions right on the post-quiz.

Additional links you might want to take a look at now. 

Many people look a the perks of the job of President, but neglect to consider how stressful it is to be President. Take a look a this feature from the Washington Post that investigates the aging process and the President. 

If you want to start some research to help you with your unit essay, check out the links here.   NOTE: the due date on that page is wrong. 

Finally, you have homework tonight.
