Note: the glossary is found on assignment 4. There is no unit 4 test. Unit 4 is covered in the midterm.

3. Read the essay "The Westminster System".

You can enable Flash by going to Google's settings and in the search box just type in Flash.

If students have not yet downloaded assignment 4, they should do so before this meeting.
