Begin with a QUIZ on our last 2 assignments about the Amendment Process and on what are called Informal Amendments.  Use your assignments to help you. 

After you finish the quiz, you may want to use the textbook to fill in the blanks on the Formal Amendment Review from yesterday. (you'll find it in the Google Docs Templates, or get a paper copy if you prefer). 

If you are finished (or when you do) we'll be looking again at the links to learn more about the kinds of ideas that have been suggested as amendments to the Constitution. As you review them, look for an idea  
(a) that you agree with, 
(b) that you disagree with, and 
(c) that  puzzles you (why would anyone want such an idea added to the Constitution???) 
(d) Finally, what is an Amendment that YOU think we should add to the Constitution that you don't see there? Be ready to explain your answer. 

HOMEWORK: READ pages 73-80; Answer questions 1, 3, and 5 on pg 80.
