Extra Credit Opportunity...Last One

One of the things that we will examine in the alcohol and marijuana unit is alcohol advertisements. Students can bring in ONE alcohol advertisement from a magazine (not printed from the computer) and earn 5 points. Those points can be added to an assignment of their choosing, but not their overall average.

The ads are due by Friday, December 4th.
