CURRENT ISSUES NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION GROUP PROJECT

Click on the link below to view the handout and to use the links that I have given you.  You may find links of your own as well, just remember our Media Bias unit and make sure that they are credible.  This is DUE ON THURSDAY… we will be in the Media Center Monday and Tuesday.  Remember that you are “debriefing” your advisors (0ur class) on all that they need to know about your area of expertise.  Make it informative!  Everyone in your group needs to work together and in addition to the presentation (powerpoint) remember that I need an outline of your information along with a task sheet.
