Grade 12‎ > ‎

Week 5- 9/25/12

Here are a bunch of choices either requiring you to play a video (keep your fingers crossed) or print out an article.  I wish I could provide the best plan for every advisory group but I guess that might be unrealistic.  Hopefully one of these ideas will get them talking!  If you have an idea please e-mail it to me and I will put it on the website for others to use.

Use last weeks links to continue your discussion.

General Interest Stories
Here is a tear jerking Video (if it will play) about a girl with leukemia.  For your advisory groups that are about celebrating life.
