Directions: (Task is on last page of PDF.
     1. Students will choose one of the three environmental issues to
        write about.
     2. They must choose a side froma crediable viewpoint. For example
        they might be an environmentalist, a government official, a
        business person, etc.
     3. They will then write a short report, no more than one page, 
        argueing their position on the issue they chose. 
     4. They need to include what they believe is causing the 
        pollution,  conseuquences, economic benefits, and possible 
        solutions in their writing. Again, from their viewpoint not 
        personal feelings.
     5. Then they will create a flyer (paper, posterboard, or on the PC)
        about their environmental issue. The flyer again must reflect 
        their characters viewpoint. The flyer should be colorful and
