5/3 Homework


*We will be creating a new web page on your Google Site for this project. You will
also put your Miss Bailin and Miss Leland went for a drive project on it and a few
other things.
*This page will be titled Finale

BLOCK HOMEWORK (from what wasn't done today)
-Directly connect a problem (cause) in the 1920s with a problem (effect) in the 1930s
-Next to each pair (or more if you can find multiple links) write which theme it covers:
community, conflict, justice, or wealth. For each one, you may ONLY choose
-Make sure you understand: what a stock is, what the stock market is, how the stock market
works, and why it crashed....
***Tomorrow you will be asked to make a visual interpretation of this information in a short
amount of time (maybe one period).

TOPIC: How to Write a Bill

  • Preamble: This section should provide your reasons for the necessity of your bill. Why is your topic something that should be addressed by the government? This section's clauses should always begin with a "Whereas..."
  • Body: This section should be separated into sections and subsections. Each proposed idea for the implementation of the bill should be a section. Subsections should be used to provide further detail and clarification (definitions, etc.) for their appropriate bill sections.
  • Enactment Clause: This is the final section of the bill (and can be labeled as a section as normal). EACH BILL MUST HAVE AN ENACTMENT CLAUSE!! The enactment clause tells your fellow congressmen when your bill will take effect if passed. It may specify a future date (September 30, 2005) or a certain number of days following the passage of the bill (60 days after passage). Enactment dates within 30 days of passage are used for EMERGENCY legislation only. Enactment dates more than 90 days after passage is used for most legislation and is the enactment period for normal legislation.

Phase 1: Planning
Phase 2: Writing
the scoring rubric (not final)
the sections at the bottom of the page.

***HAVE ONE PERSON SET UP THE FORMAT IN A GOOGLE DOC, SO YOU CAN JUST PLUG THINGS IN, OR USE the bill template provided here. The only issue with the template is that not all group members can work on it at the same time and make edits. Only one person can. You might want to pull up this format next to your Google Doc. THE FORMAT MUST BE CORRECT. The sections go in the body. :)
