Warm Up (0 minutes)

There will be no warm up today. I will be with Mr. Nelson and other teachers in “A” building today.

Task #1 (1 minute)

Lets lock in who is playing each roll in this trial. To VIEW the SIGN UP SHEET for this trial click HERE. To actually edit the sign up sheet you will need to go through your e-mail and click the link that was sent to you.

Task #2 (55 minutes)

Today you will be taking a quiz on the case of Oregon v Martin. Go to and enter room “A89559b4”. I fully expect you to talk and research the case while I am gone and have taken this into account when writing the quiz. You only have this class period to finish the quiz. The socrative portal will shut down at 9:33 AM. Remember Thursdays are minimum days.


I am disappointed that period 2 is also having problems putting their Chromebooks away correctly (that means in the slots right side up and plugged in). As a challenge today I will add 100 points to everyone’s grade if at the end of the period you put all the chromebooks away correctly and then someone takes a picture of our cart and e-mails it to me at to prove that your class put the chromebooks away perfectly. If no photo proof is sent then no one gets the extra credit.
