Constitution Day! - 9/17/2015

HOMEWORK: Prepare for Friday's exam. Here's what you should know:
  • The current 2016 Presidential candidates
    • Be able to identify them by sight, know their names, their political party, and whether they are currently an active candidate for the 2016 Presidential election
    • Need a little help remembering them all. Here's that NEW YORK TIMES GUIDE I gave you at the beginning of our Presidential unit
  • In general, where Republicans and Democrats stand on the issues
    • For example, Republicans general favor gun rights, while Democrats want more gun control; most Republican candidates believe marriage should be between a man and a woman while Democrats support same-sex marriage rights; and so forth
  • Also know who is NOT currently in the 2016 race. Who hasn't declared yet? Who has recently dropped out of the race?
  • Please note that the exam will no longer cover the 13 Colonies Map
