You had homework due today:

Let's begin with an open-note Quiz over last night's HOMEWORK. Use your homework and notes to answer the questions as best you can. 

Today in class we'll work on the last assignment for this unit, dealing with the many levels of courts and the judges who serve in them. 
Open a Google Doc called "Chapter 25.4: The Courts & their Judges" and use the text (pages 676-681) to collect the answers. If you don't finish in class, you may complete it for homework. 

Based on your comments and feedback, we've made a few changes to the original handout for the unit:

The UNIT TEST is still open-note, but it will be Monday, May 13 instead of this Friday.
