Day 65--

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 understand how the court system functions at the state and local level.I will work with a partner to learn about the many different levels of courts in the states. I will turn in my slideshow at the end of class.This is a formative assessment and will help me with my summative assessments in this assessment cycle.

Today is a repeat of yesterday's assignment: We didn't have time to finish, and many students will be absent for the AP English exam. So if you're here, it's your chance to finish, catch up, or get ahead. If you're absent, you won't miss too much. 

If you would like to retake yesterday's open-note Quiz over the previous night's HOMEWORK, you may do so now. 

Today in class we'll continue 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. 
The Unit Writing Assignment is CANCELLED!
