WISER- Research Process for HMS



Public Service Announcement Project

You will be researching a current topic and creating a Public Service Announcement about it.  The purpose of a PSA is to raise awareness about an issue and persuade your audience to take action. You must research your topic thoughtfully and try to answer all of your questions.  Most importantly, you will try to come up with a solution to your problem.  Once you are ready you will create the final product - a PSA.
