Journal Topics vary depending on your teacher!

We lost access to our media server. The videos below are no longer available online. I can give the video files to you via flash drive from my classroom computer. You can then watch the video on a student laptop. Or you can bring your own flash drive and then you can watch the video on a computer at home.
