make up work and class notes

Make sure you check this page if you are absent. It is also a good idea to check in preparation for the Friday quizzes.  If you miss a quiz or test you will have until the following Friday to make it up.

You will take a test in June on the fifty states, five Great Lakes, ten cities and 15 rivers.  I expect several 100s.

strict construction (interpretation)
      Jefferson's idea
      government can only do exactly what Const. 
      says
      if Const. doesn't say gov. can do it then they
      can't
      makes for a weak central gov.
loose construction (interpretation) 
      if Const. doesn't forbid it then gov. can do it
      makes for a stronger central gov.

     between North and South
     South wanted no restrictions on slave trade (importation of slaves)
