  1. Hi Sami, You do not have to take the Constitution test tomorrow. Video clips are never in the slideshow. All videos are located in the vodpod widget on the left sidebar. Make sure you complete the Constitution slideshow packet using the corresponding post and then you can start the Study Guide CYOA on Tuesday for HW. You can take the make up test Wednesday or Thursday. I hope your performances went well! 🙂 I wish I could have seen it. By the way, Chris and Evan created a new Cyoa study tool by writing and performing a rap. I can show you their lyrics tomorrow if you are interested.

  3. While going over the slide show The Constitution and the three branches of the government were clarified for me. The videos really helped me better understand the concepts and terms we learned while fact finding, and also helped me better understand each branch. The video of the man with the drawing and animations really helped me understand the topics better.

  4. Hi Nicole, Review the Constitution handouts means read them over and check for your understanding. The Constitution handouts include, “A Just Right Government,” “Brainpop Matching & Quiz” and the “Constitution slideshow.” Daily review helps keep the information in context and enables you to seek clarification. It’s great that you enjoyed. “Fact Finding.” As I stated today and wrote on the Agenda board we will review the information through interactive discussion, video clips, interactive responses and using an iPad app. We will also use the ActiVotes for a Constitution Review Game called, “Beat the Boss.”

  5. hey mrs.d,
    i had a question about tonight’s homework. i am kind of confused about what to study for the constitution handouts. does that mean the packet we just learned or something different because i looked in my folder and i didn’t really see much that i could study! maybe if you could get back to me and clarify the homework that would be fantastic. that would really help me out. also i thought that today in class it was better to do the notes like that when using the ipads and doing it individually but i think that after we all finish the packet we should review it as a class and talk about it. even though i wrote the whole packet somethings im not really sure what it means and is trying to say about our history and the constitution so that would really help me out!
