Mr. Little is clean shaved!! In 8th period we started by talking about the past few days he missed and informed us that the study guide is not homework. After that we talk briefly about Taco bell And horse meat (not sure how we got on the topic). Then we talked articles 4-7 and he put together a presentation (https://docs.google.com/a/ccsd66.org/presentation/d/10YyES6vkFWDx8w8HLUHtF-QYRxFdvEaQMw4oJl9eMRA/edit#slide=id.p11). Here is a brief summary of articles 4-7…
Article 4- Article four discuses States relationships with other states and how they must not discriminate you based on your residency in another state. All states must have the same driving age and currency as the rest of the country does. Also, if you get married then move to another state you are still married. then we discussed people leaving the state they are native. If Phillip kills 20 people he cant run to Kansas and be forgiven. Kansas must return him to Illinois to be trialed. Back in the civil war times if a slave would run away and escape to another state he must be brought back. Finally for article 4, new states. A new state must be approved by congress and the new state must approve of the constitution. A state can not be split unless the whole state agrees with it.
Article 5- Adding Amendments can be done one of two ways the most popular is congress making a bill then having it passed by 3/4th of the states. Also a way that has not been successful in history is Congress calling a convention then each state sends representatives and congress tries to sell the idea Amendment.
Article 6- If a state law interferes with federal law, federal law wins. This is to make sure the govt. doesn’t become powerless. Another part of article 6 is that the U.S. can’t make anyone do religious test to get into office. swearing on the bible, optional.
Article 7- This just states that 9 out of the 13 colonies must vote for the constitution for it to come into affect.
I hope this helped and have a good day and remember that 19,20,21,23,24 in the WTP book.
