Assignments week of 2/12-2/16

This week we will be continuing with the e-Congress work. We will be writing and submitting our bills to YLI. This will be the last week spent on the actual writing of our bills. The next step will occur in a few weeks when we review the bills from others - and they do the same for our bills - very exciting. The due date for the bill writing is 2/15 - I have to get them turned in, at the latest, by that day. *This has been a unique experience for the students as they try to work through the bill writing/creating process - they feel like it is taking forever. They don't realize that this process can actually take years.
We may be able to watch a Georgia Stories on juvenal justice on Friday.
