This is an in class project where students are introduced to an issue our town is having.....a cosmetics company wants to build in our town and help our economy grow, but they do testing on animals and many in our town feel strongly about the issue. There will be a Town Hall Meeting Friday to hear both sides of the issue (for/against animal testing) and students will vote as members of the town to decide if the company will build near our town of Wilsonville, or have to find a new location. and they need to research for/against based on their "expert job title" that was assigned to them when they entered the room. Students will be gathering research from at least three different sources (websites) and citing them in their notes. These notes will be completed and turned in through the Google Classroom by Thursday.
