In Class - Turn in signed syllabus. Discuss the "Role of the Government on the Individual." Make a list of at least 20 different aspects of your life in which government plays a role (ie. traffic laws, requiring you to be in school, age requirements (driving, drinking, movies)). After you have made this list, we will discuss these as a class. What conclusion can you make after discussing this?
Homework - Take your list and decide whether the federal, state, or local government is responsible for making these laws/rules/guidelines. Also, see if you can come up with something that is not regulated by some form of government.
Watch the Super Bowl. Rather watch the Super Bowl advertisements. Make a list of all of the different companies that are advertising during the Super Bowl. Both of these assignments are due on Monday at the beginning of class.
