AWESOME SAVING DEAL ALERT !!!!
If you are ready to start saving you need to check out this deal! Quail Creek Bank has SEVERAL opportunities for you to earn money off your money as a young adult and this is the best deal yet! Do it now! I am actually young enough still and I am going to do it, too! This bank actually provides us everything you'll learn next semester in Personal Finance. 

So here is what the deal entails: If you open a savings account, you can deposit any amount all the way up to $1000 and earn 5% interest!!!!!! This is a HUGE deal that you'll understand more next semester. You will keep earning that amount until you are 30 (unless of course times get rough for the bank)!! Any amount over $1000 will earn the normal .1% interest. Please say you heard about the deal at Deer Creek High School because it'll help ensure I get the funding to keep our school's program going.

Sign up at https://www.icivics.org/register as a student to play the Do I Have a Right? game. It's kinda fun! You get to practice with laws and act like an attorney. It's a little juvenile but still fun.

Today we learned about socialism. If you were absent view the PPT on GC for the information and the assignment. 

1/12
Today we finished the questions we didn't get to yesterday (see the last slide of yesterday's attachment). We then talked about the prejudice we all face so we can understand we all deal with hardships and we are all going to have different opinions simply because our lives are different. I want us to understand that so that when we debate you can be more understanding of one another. 

1/11
Today we are discussing the amendment process. Read the Powerpoint and complete the questions on THE LAST slide. =)

1/3 Welcome! Most of you I had last semester but a few of you I didn't. If you weren't mine last semester don't forget to read the syllabus, get that sheet signed by your parentals/guardians, and answer the questions about yourself. 

Everyone did the following. If you were absent, please do it. =)
1. Get out two clean sheets of paper.
2. Go online and find a inspirational quote that you feel could benefit you and your peers this semester. Write it on both sheets. 
3. On one of the sheets after the following question. Reflecting on your work ethic, behavior, attitude, etc. from last 4. semester, what are some things you can do better? Turn in this sheet.
5. On the second sheet title it “I’m grateful for” then write down one thing you are grateful for. You will keep this is in your class binder and write something different each day. This will serve as a reminder to us on those bad days they we have a lot to be grateful for. =)
