8C - "Homework" for Monday, March 23

This is a time for you to catch up!  We have been talking about eco-tourism.

In particular, attitudes towards eco-tourism (p. 52 of your textbook)
and ways a resort can be environmentally friendly (pages 53-54 of your textbook)

Here is an online version of the article on pages 53-54 of your textbook (it's not exactly the same, but similar enough for review!)  http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/catalyx-and-ramona-tribe-start-work-on-100-off-grid-renewable-energy-eco-tourism-resort-62027202.html

Here are the homework exercises you could have done.  Monday, March 23 will be the last time you may hand them in for points: http://ennsvalleyenglish.blogspot.co.at/2015/03/8c-homework-for-monday-march-16.html
