Day 68--

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 explain some of the ways political parties function in today's political world.I will read an article about political parties and answer some questions regarding how they operate today.  I will turn in my work to the Daily Work Dropbox.This is a formative assessment; it won't have a direct impact on my course grade, but it will help prepare me for the summative assessment on this unit. 

Yesterday you took the State & Local Government test.  Grades have been entered in Skyward, so you can check your scores if you like. You'll get your tests back to go over and review when Mr. Knowles returns.  Retakes, if you're interested, will be available starting tomorrow. 

But now it's time to get back to our new unit, by taking a deeper look at what you read about last night: Political Parties.  

Open the article titled Believe it or Not. It's a Read-only document so you'll need to make a copy for yourself so you can type answers to the questions there. You may be able to answer the questions with just the article, or you may want to visit these links to help you or to find out more.
Finished? Great. Share your assignment in the Daily Work Dropbox

Then, it's time for some homework. If you missed it yesterday, pick up a copy of the new unit handout (your very last one!) and get started on your second assignment, due tomorrow.
