Each team of four students will create the following products:
Your success depends on:
The Upper Division students of Metro are proud to present their political ads for the California propositions of November 2008. These videos are the product of months of researching the ballot, interviewing voters, studying the media, thinking critically about the issues, and spending hours in video production.
We are thrilled that ABC-7 News came to Metro to film a story about our project. See the ABC-7 News story.
Congratulations to the students of Metro for their wildly successful exhibition night.

We identified women who became mothers in their teens as our swing voters for Proposition 4. We learned by interviewing young mothers that they were iffy about the situation. Some said that they would want to know if their daughter was pregnant or not, but all these women understood the young girls who are going through this situation. In our ad we argue that if this proposition were passed, young girls would go to desperate measures to get rid of their babies, whether using drugs, drinking alcohol, or hurting themselves. We are targeting these women with an emotional warning that teens are at risk if Proposition 4 is passed.
