Today we talked about Campaign Ads and the role they play in the political process! To demonstrate this, we watched quite a few ads. Some were great, some were...not.
Tomorrow we'll spend the period evaluating campaign ads for the races we're following. You don't have any homework tonight!
Today we broke down the various checks and balances within the US Constitution! We evaluated the functions of each branch, talked about the current political environment, and looked at how each branch is able to check the others.
Your homework is to do something that makes you happy.
