If you're reading this, then I am unfortunately still sick with the flu. Today you will continue to research your assigned Supreme Court case. Eventually, you will be creating a "Common Craft Style" video. Funny story about that title when I get back.
I am unfortunately home sick today. Here's the plan:
Go to my American Government page and check out the Supreme Court Presentation Overview.
As a class, figure out in groups of 3-4 which group will do which case. One group per case!
DO NIT BEGIN A POWERPOINT. Just do your research today, I will explain how we will present this tomorrow.
See you then!
1. Go to http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/cabinet
2. Find your assigned member of the President's Cabinet & complete this worksheet. Print completed sheet and be ready to give a ONE MINUTE briefing to the class tomorrow. If you finish early, read this article about the President's expected actions on immigration today. Think: how might this action affect progress in the federal government when the new session begins in January?
