Now, this is going to scare some of you. Big time. This is the type of source you all need to begin using to write papers. Lots of info and lots of big words.

Using your scanning skills:

2. Read page 4 and summarize it into a three point summary.

3. Find a positive and negative effect of Extreme Makeover.
