I recognise there are those, well, actually, ONE, who leaves everything until the last minute. Therefore I hesitate in giving this homework to be 'completed by Wednesday'.
Therefore let us assume that the LATEST DATE is by Wednesday but I can ask for it any time after Sunday:
"Find out about what policies they could find on a certain topic (abortion, etc.) and discuss how it impacted on family life."
SHOW AN INTEREST and post on at least THREE different blogs!
