1. Please read from We hold these truths to be self-evident
* Prologue: Natural Law Matters

2. Read the following from We hold these truths to be self-evident.
*Chapter 1: "The law of Supremacy"
*Chapter 2: "The law of Authority"

3.Write a short essay on one of these readings from number 2.
I would like you to choose one of the 5 different types of  essays explained on the following link.

These will be turned in and corrected. Please make sure it is a final copy, and ready for examination.

Our Leadership Focus for this month will be

John and Abigail Adams!

4. Please read the letters of John and Abigail Adams. You may read a book from your personal library, the public library or the following links will work. 
No you don't need to read all of them!!! Skim through them, find one that you LOVE!
Here are a few ideas:
* One that you feel goes perfectly with our Principle of Following God and/or Humility.
*One that shows that they were true statesmen, fulfilling their life's mission.
*One that inspires you to be a better leader.
5. Now take that letter, or a sample of a few of the letters and do something with it. This can be anything that you feel will explain the reason you choose it. Come prepared to present it in class. In a sense you are trying to prove your choice, your opinion to others in the class.
Each month we will be doing a Constitution Study. 
You will be breaking down the constitution, and making it yours!!!
Similar to Juliette Turner, who wrote our constitution rocks!
Here is a portion of what inspired me to do this Constitution Study with you. I hope it inspires you as much as it did me! :)
"... the Constitution of the United States is a glorious standard; it is founded in the wisdom of God. It is a heavenly banner; it is to all those who are privileged with the sweets of its liberty, like the cooling shades and refreshing waters of a great rock in a thirsty and weary land. It is like a great tree under whose branches men from every clime can be shielded from the burning rays of the sun."
History of the Church Vol. 3, Page 304
This month we will focus on the Preamble.
6.  Research the Preamble, pick it apart, and make it yours!!!
Then design a page for your "book" all about the preamble.
Make it yours, and make it unforgettable!!!
I look forward to seeing what you will create, what you will think and how we will teach each other!!!
