Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Buying Local- Public Service Announcement


We will be using our economics background from the history of Lumber to guide us in understanding how buying products locally affects our community’s economy. We will be using pre-writing and note taking strategies to support the  creation of video based public service announcements to persuade people in our community to buy products locally, in order to help our local economy.
