I hope that you had a nice weekend and are hunkering down to study for your test on Monday. Here are some pointers:
- Review your vocabulary and any and all homework that I passed back. Words like: constituent, pocket veto, filibuster...etc.
- Review the powers of Congress (slide show link on the blog, right hand side), chart in your notes. When in doubt, chances are the power listed is a Delegated Power... because there are so many of them!
- Know how to diagram out how a bill becomes a law.
- How is representation in Congress determined? (2 Senators per state, Reps based on population) How long are the terms for each and what are the requirements? Make sure you understand the classes in the Senate... no two Senate seats from a state are ever up in the same election.
