    Each group will be prepared to add to the discussion that we will have on Thursday.  Each group will be required to contribute researched answers and when adding to the discussion you will cite your sources.  You should be talking for about 3 minutes (per team) and no more than that amount of time.  One of the interesting objectives of this lesson will be for each group to contribute their information at the most logical point in the conversation.  I will be grading you on an individual grade and group grade.  All material must be submitted by the end of the day on Wednesday so no last minute entries.  I will have your work prior to the discussion so I will know exactly what you will be saying.  Time to get busy.
