What did you accomplish today?  
We had an interview with Kirsten Buchanan. She gave us really great information on how these exersices help to improve the anterior crucial ligament. Also, we got some really great insight on the pros and cons of getting surgery and waiting. We continued to write our proposal and we found a really great website called FIFA 11+.

Where are you at in your notetaking process at this point?  
Right now we have already made a notecard on what the ACL is. And, we are taking notes on the FIFA 11+ website to give more information on the organization.

How much longer will you need for your research?  
Right now we think that we can finish our middle school workout in the next few weeks. In the next trimester we want to pursue this topic and try to present the workout to the highschool and the elementary school.

What challenges are you facing?  
None.

Week 3 Reflections:

During the course of the past 3 weeks we have made an anterior cruciate ligament(acl) prevention website. The website includes an acl focused workout and information on this topic, including logistics on the injuries, and what the anterior cruciate ligament is(acl.) Also, we went outside and photographed each other doing the exercises to set an example. Furthermore, we have been emailing with the Assistant Clinical Professor of  the University of New England. We are hoping that in the next week we will have a meeting and learn more information on this topic. Our hope is too propose a group of workouts to the Yarmouth School District so that we can bring this important topic to their attention. In the next few weeks our group wants to go to UNE to interview some students that have experienced this injury in the past. And, too get more information on our workout. Meanwhile, we have been using the graphic organizer to record our dot jots which answer our guiding questions. After this is completed we want to turn these notes into a proposal in the form of an essay. This is such an enticing subject! And, we can't wait to learn more!
