10.26.10 Wiki Discussions

Good morning everyone! All of your wiki discussions have been updated and are in powerschool including late posts. Remember, you can only receive late credit if it is within the unit we are working on. So if you do a discussion post on Night Women from Krik? Krak! you will not receive credit for it.

Also, the posts "Sex Trafficking" and "Congo" are blocked by the school so I did not count that as a homework assignment. Instead, I gave you extra credit if you were able to respond to one of those posts.
Have a nice day and email me if you have any questions.
