American Government 2/11

In Class - Finish President Obama's news conference. Continue to take notes about ideas/topics discussed in the president's responses to the reporter's questions. From the news conference and our discussions in class, you are to come up with 10 questions regarding the economic situation in this country. If you were the reporter, what would you ask President Obama about his stimulus plan.

Homework - Start doing some research concerning the stimulus plan. You have asked the questions, now find the answers. For class tomorrow, bring 3 current events about our current economic situation. You may use the ones found on my blog, or find three on your own. It is up to you. Use the articles to help answer the questions you have already asked. This will hopefully give you some ideas to talk about during our class discussion on Friday.

Secondly, be sure to answer the Question of the Week that is found on my blog. This needs to be done by Friday evening, no later than 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

NOTE - This class discussion is important to our study of our current economic situation. Depending on how this goes, we may or may not do this again. It is up to you. Also, this is something that cannot be made up for any reason. Part of your grade is classroom attendance and what we do in class is your responsibility.
