Senators' Assignment

posted Jun 6, 2012, 11:46 AM by Colin McCormick   [ updated Jun 6, 2012, 12:15 PM ]

Once you have selected your senator, find a statement by that Senator, I am calling this an anchor statement, because you will base your questions around this statement. 
The assignment is: Find a statement that fits the criteria of an anchor statement, then explain how this statement informs your opinion on the topic at hand.
