  • Watch the full program (i.e., all chapters) online at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/storm/view/#morelink, and then answer all of the CSAR questions.
  • Type your responses using complete sentences along with proper grammar and punctuation. Incorporate political science material from the textbook and chapter guides.
