Today we begin with a QUIZ over last night's assignment. Then, we'll be reviewing some of the key ideas from last night's homework. Take the quiz first, check your answers, then pick up a copy of the January 10, 2011 Upfront Magazine to read "Upfront's guide to the Constitution" on pages 6-7 while you wait for others to finish the quiz.

As you read the article, see if you can find the answers to the questions in a Google Doc template called "Constitution Questions". Show your choices by changing the correct answer to RED. For question 6, follow the link, learn a little about one of the Amendments in the question, and write a short response to show your thoughts.
