If you are doing the written journal article, it must be a minimum of 350 words to about 650 words.

For those of you that tend to write a lot, try not to go over 700 words. DONT BE REPETITIVE.

for both written and Video new reports you must turn in a written workcited in MLA or APA format. This will show me where you get your information. Remeber, no wikipedia.
