– Law & Order T-Shirt Designs. We are designing t-shirts for our SLC. I want these shirts to be designed by students. Once I have received enough student designs the Law & Order students will vote on which design they like the best. The reason we are doing this is because we want to raise money for our SLC to be able to do things and get some experience with people and places in Law & Order. We are also raising money for our Mock Trial team so they can go to this year’s competition. You are not going to be graded on artistic ability. You will be graded on effort. I am telling you about this assignment today and it will be due Friday. I will be giving you blank t-shirt templates to use tomorrow for this assignment. Instructions are here -> Law & Order T-Shirt Project Information

– Cesar Chavez Cook Book. This is another way of raising money for our Law & Order SLC. This assignment is extra credit through. I will give you 5 points of extra credit for each recipe you bring in. Instructions are here -> Recipe Format. If the recipe is not in this format I will have to give your work back to you till you correct it.
