HW: Watch the TEDEd video on 'Power' and take notes in Unit 2 Research Notes
Take notes on information from the video to answer the following first 3 guiding questions:

Remember you can organize your notes in a way that best suits your preferred style and method of organizing notes. But if you prefer using the organizational structure we used in Unit 1, go back and look at your Unit 1 research notes and set up columns and rows to help you with that.
