    I would imagine you would start with a line, and work with some basic properties of the parallelogram to construct it. (Like, both sides are parallel so construct a line parallel to the original line) I haven't gone over the actual construction in Geometry, so that would be where I'd start. I'll try and figure the process out...

    It looks like, if you construct some line with two points (A and B), and some point not on AB and create the segment BC, you mainly just have to copy the angle measures |dw:1329268399028:dw| Maybe something like that?

    (pretending my awkwardly made circles are actually compass marks

    So like, you'd start with BC and the angle outside of the parallelogram and copy the angle to A. Then, you'd copy the angle to C coming off of BC and into the parallelogram.and create the two lines through the marks for your copied angles I hope that makes sense... :P

    I didn't know how to copy an angle so I found this site that shows how to do it. http://www.mathopenref.com/constcopyangle.html Other than that I like AccessDenied's answer.
