Extra Credit - TONIGHT!

Good afternoon!

This evening, President Obama will be delivering a presidential address to the nation. From what I understand, the topic is to be about how the last of the combat troops have left Iraq and what that means for us as a country. You can find out more about this today here, at the White House official website.

If you would like to earn extra credit, here is what you need to do:

1. Watch the President's address
It will begin at 7pm Central Standard Time (here in Chicago).
It will be on all major news stations - ABC, NBC, etc. Channels 2, 4, 7 ...

looseleaf paper:

2. Summarize what the president talked about in his speech. The summary should be at least 6 sentences.

3. Write down 3 observations / questions you have about the speech, the topic, or anything the president said.

... turn it in to me on Wednesday or Thursday!
