Classwork for 28 August

Hi guys, I am on MC today. Please work in your groups for next week's performance task. Make sure that your article is well developed by this point and does not exceed 600 words (minimum 450). Remember it must be centered around a controversy and have well-established viewpoints from different points of view in your topic area. Also, as you develop your newscast, keep in mind the scoring rubric that will be used and make sure your work is developed around those specific criteria. Your newscast should be done like the last one, but this time only focuses on the one main story your group has chosen. Thanks and have a good Wednesday. Mr. Arrowood PS- If your group has finished (which I don't think is the case for most of you), then do Task 2 from the handouts I gave you yesterday.
