Hey Guys and Gals!

This week we are going to analyze the music industry.  I have put together two conflicting opinions on streaming music on our devices.  Please read, annotate and decide where you stand on this issue.  The writing task can be found in Google Classroom.

Please submit work anytime during the week and I will provide feedback in that same forum.  For example, when you turn in an assignment in Google Classroom I will give feedback through Google Classroom.
