Third Debate Extra Credit--October 19

Tonight is the last of the three Presidential debates.  If you would like an extra credit opportunity tune into the debate (or watch it online before Friday) and provide some analysis.  I created a very basic form that is LINKED HERE.  You can print it out and use it, or create your own replica on a sheet of notebook paper.  Essentially, you are asked to provide information about three issues (hopefully at least three will be discussed :), comment on style, and provide your own opinions.

Debate Time: 6:00
