                              - You should have a total of 6 (6) print and six (6) internet sources

                    - Answer the following question for each topic:

                              - "What further research/information/collaboration would you need in order to fully investigate this topic?"

                                        - Name specific things: People; Businesses; Statistics; Charts; Maps; etc.

                                                  - These are all things that will help give you a deeper and more holistic understanding of the topic.

                    - Choose one of your topics to focus your topic on (the other two (2) will serve as back-up topics)

                                   - C. How will you engage in collaborative, experiential learning?
