Special Interest Group: Practice
• Gather in groups.
• Together, review your major concerns, ideas about development, the environment and planning for future growth. “What is our core philosophy?”
• Based on your philosophy, what changes would you make to Onalaska? “What are our concerns? Ideas for development? Ideas on the environment? Plans for future growth?”
• Write these down and present them to the class.
Assessment: If the learning target is to understand the core philosophy of my special interest group, how am I meeting this target?
