APGov Period 6 - June 17th

Something has come up at the last minute and I won't be present in class today.  This means that we will not be able to celebrate the end of the year with a small party, as we had planned last class.  It would be unfair of me to expect the substitute to take on the special responsibilities for this party, so please do not give them a hard time about it.  A few of you had already given me money for the party; please stop by Room3011 next week so I can return it to you.

Today, the substitute will ask you to complete several sections of your Mock Congress rubric.  Those sections include information on how your voted on different bills (only count bills that were voted on by the whole house), what happened to the bills you wrote (did they pass committee?  Were they amended?  Did they pass the whole House?), and what information you posted to the class wiki.  In the case of bipartisan bills, you should consider your vote to be 2 votes: one in favor of a bill from your party, one in favor of a bill from the other party.  You'll probably need to use your wikispaces profile to help you in completing the rubric.  Make sure you turn in the rubric before the end of class.

I'm really bummed out that I was forced to miss our last class together.  Congratulations on making it through APGov!  I'll especially remember your class for how supportive you were of each other and how often you would clap for each other's accomplishments - I've always thought that was really cool.

Feel free to stop by Room3011 next week, make sure you stop in and say hi next September, and have a great, great summer!

HoA - June 17th

Something has come up at the last minute, and I will not be present in class today.  I've left your substitute teacher instructions to bring you down to Lab C (Room 2230) to work on your final exam projects.  You'll have the entire period to prepare your projects with your classmates.

Our final exam period is from 8:19-10:19 on Tuesday.  We'll start the period by jumping straight into the presentations, so be sure that you're prepared.

See you Tuesday!
