Day 3 August 29/30th

Today in class:
Your disclosure document and blog comment were due
We went over Discussion Points
Which are:
1. Raise your hand. Do not shout out or talk while anyone else is talking
2. Listen Quietly. Listening to others' opinions and comments is half of discussion-if you are talking you are not listening
3. Be respectful and kind. No name-calling or personal attacks.
4. Make relevant comments and be prepared to back up your assertions.
If these rules are no followed during class discussion Mrs. Perry reserves will deduct a point from your unit packet per incidence.

We debated/discussed Human Nature
We held a Brownie demo illustrating how human nature influences they way governments are formed
We filled out the types of government note-taking form using the types of government powerpoint (both are here on the blog)
Quick Write on Lord Acton's famous quote: "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely" Do you agree? Why or why not? Paragraph response for your folder

If you were absent: complete the Human Nature Debate from, Types of government note-taking guide, and the Quick Write (using the powerpoints/notes on the blog to complete these)
