Reminder for tomorrow

Budget lines for project one are due tomorrow, printed out. See the example below or in the handouts tab:

SCHOOLZONES – Wicomico County commissioners will meet Wednesday to discuss the possibility of putting speed cameras in school zones throughout the county. The proposal came about after angry parents petitioned to get cameras following a crash involving a 7-year-old pedestrian.

Last-minute extra credit opportunity

I am leading a media literacy seminar for faculty tomorrow, and I am looking for a few more student volunteers to help out. Basically, you would listen to the presentation, then help faculty members brainstorm ways to incorporate activities into their classes. The event is from 1-3 p.m. tomorrow. If you would like to help (and receive 20 extra credit points on a quiz), email me as soon as possible. We will need to meet very briefly beforehand to go over your responsibilities.

Thanks!
