American Government 10/4/10

In Class - WHIP presentations (2nd Period). 1st and 4th - Select for the rest of the week. Begin/continue watching documentary "Stupid in America," a look at the public education system of the United States. While watching, be sure to take notice of how the US ranks internationally in education. Also, take a close look at the system itself including the federal law of No Child Left Behind (NCLB). Is closing a failing school acceptable? How should we evaluate our students?

Homework - Start doing some research on the following questions including the questions that you may already have concerning education reform. Take a look at the following articles/links. Be sure to update your blog.

EXTRA CREDIT - Tonight at the Riverside Convention Center (3443 Orange St.) from 5-8 pm, there is a college/career fair. I highly recommend that you attend. Simply take a photo of yourself while you are there, and you will receive the extra credit. While you are there, take advantage of the information available to you.
