Awhile ago we watched The Story of Stuff and students were asked to reflect on the causes and effects of our behavior and lifestyles. Alejo, DK, and João just finished their video of cause and effects. Please check it out and let them know what you think.
Here is the video we watched in class today. Please write (or record) a blog post reflecting on "The Story of Stuff" with your thoughts, what shocked you, and what you feel about it. Post it onto your Weebly site by Wednesday.
