Accessing Google Drive
When you use Google Drive for school and library work, use your Murrow Google Account. Your personal Google account will not work. You MUST use the one that ends with @ermurrowhs.org. If you log in with your phone, you need to click the hamburger icon (three lines) in the upper left, click on dropdown, and select the @murrowhs.org one.

If your name was Freddy Mercury and your OSIS # was 999991234, your Murrow account would be:
FMercury1234@ermurrowhs.org and your password would be 999991234
You may not use Wikipedia as a source of evidence for your paper or video. That being said, I do suggest its use as a way to build background knowledge on a topic. Calling up prior knowledge or creating knowledge about a topic where none was before is essential to learning. Wikipedia is a good site for the purpose of pre-search, or educating yourself about the main points of a topic before you dig into its details.
The realism, interaction, and balance of your project are very important to consider in assessing its quality. In essence, they surround the entire project. It should feel authentic. It should show a balanced interaction that follows common conversation patterns (i.e. listen then respond).

Then, choose 2 issues, arguments, or ideas, about which they might differ greatly, or thought about a little differently.
Be sure you are using your FLast1234@ermurrowhs.org account. If you get a Request Access message, go back a step and sign into your Murrow account.
This project is to create a dialogue or a conversation between one of the Founders and a contemporary political or social figure. The list of approved personae appears to the left. Your project may be done either as a paper or as a video. The "conversation" should focus on two (2) separate arguments or issues, also outlined to the left.
Approach this project as if you were one or both of the people in the dialogue. Your project should not reflect your own opinion, but should reflect the points of view of both the historical and contemporary figures, and must be based on research. Make sure your language reflects the time period when the figure lived (or is living).
