Want to start updating this again. We will be having a test on Campaign Finance and Voting tomorrow. I will be hosting the review shortly. Most students completed their political party project presentations this past Thursday and did an amazing job. They created their own party platform, propaganda and strategy for holding a political convention.  After this we will be tackling the Electoral College and then its on to the branches of government.

On 1/13- Students "we built this city" assignment is due. In class students are tasked with designing their own city/county/town while incorporating different structures that belong to different levels of government. They must also assign who will serve as their local government body as well as place 5 ordinances for their locality.  On 1/17- Students will be tested on Federalism. This means knowing the different levels of government, their responsibilities, the name changes for the different levels, and the functions of local government. After this we will be moving on to Judicial.

Student will have a quiz on either Monday 11/21 or Tuesday 11/22. It will be based on Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances.  The next text will be the following Tuesday, 11/29.  The students did an amazing job on both voting and the electoral college test. They had a 95% and a 96% pass rate ( meaning that amount of students passed the test with a score of 70% or higher). When I asked if they studied in some way I saw a definite increase in the number of hands going up. I appreciate the effort they are all putting in and it is showing up in the results. I will be conducting my next live stream review on 11/28.
