Lessons from Steubenville - 3/27/13

These two video clips are from CNN reports on the Steubenville rape case. We watched both of these clips in class, and then used them to help inform our journal and discussion on the case.

We also had a reading, "Lessons from Steubenville," which you can download HERE.

End of Q3 - OPTIONAL NOTES

Want some additional points to help improve your grade? Simply turn in your class notes. This is completely OPTIONAL, meaning it will not hurt your grade if you don't turn them in.

These are NOT extra credit. They are a 20-point assignment. If you have all your notes, you get a 20/20 (100%) on this assignment. If you don't turn them in, they will simply be recorded as "excused" in Infinite Campus, and they will neither help nor harm your grade. Any questions? Want to turn in your notes? Please see Mr. Ippolito IN CLASS and IN PERSON on Monday, March 25.
