Day 66--

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to organize important terms and concepts according to their function at the federal, state and local government levels.I will work with a small group to discuss and organize key terms from the unit.  I will complete my chart and have it ready when I take my test on Monday.This is a formative assessment and will help me with my summative assessments in this assessment cycle.
Today we'll quickly finish our slideshow from the last two days about the court system at various levels of the state government. We have just one group left to do, then be sure to make a copy of the slideshow for you to use as part of your notes for Monday's test. 

Once we've completed that assignment, it's time for a general review of the material that will be on Monday's test.

Open a new document called Unit 4 Review, then make a copy for yourself. 
You may use your notes and/or textbook -- or just your brain and memory -- to categorize the terms into their proper columns. Drag and drop the term to its correct location. If you need it to be in more than one column, make a copy of it and put it there, too. 
Start with the terms where you KNOW their category, 
-----------then go on to those that you THINK you know, 
-------------------then to those that you're NOT SURE of, 
---------------------------then, finally, to those that you really DON'T KNOW

We'll stop from time to time to see how you're doing. Work with your partners to complete as much of the chart as you can. You'll be able to use YOUR COPY of this file during the test, along with all your other assignments, so be sure you're done with all assignments and that you have them all with you on Monday.
