Years ago, when Chris Brown and Pitbull’s song “International Love” was popular I had a student mention that it should be called “Intranational Love” because all the cities in the chorus are located within the US. (Thanks Gregoire P.) Ever since that comment, I play the song to start the class when we review Gibbons v. Ogden. I let the song play through the first chorus and ask the students to identify what is wrong with the song.
After the song, I checked the students’ flashcards from yesterday and the video guides. I called on students to explain the 4 terms. We had a brief discussion of intra vs. inter and the significance of judicial review.
For the rest of class students worked on the analysis sheet “John Marshall and the Supreme Court Analysis Sheet” and answered three Multiple-Choice Questions about McCulloch v. Maryland from a test bank I have.
HW for tomorrow: Henry Clay’s American System (the class I’ve been waiting for all year)
