All participating classes are encouraged to download and share each P.E.T.
posted, weigh the merits of the proposals, and prepare for the online 
debate coming up in January of 1997.   Keep in mind that over 2,000 students
in a *wide range* of grade levels (elementary students through high school 
students) are involved.  We are sure to see a wide range of ideas and various
levels of sophistication, but remember we are working as ONE big team to
reach CONSENSUS on a UNIVERSAL BEST P.E.T., therefore ALL proposals are
valued and respected.

REMEMBER...your P.E.T. Proposals should abide by the guidelines set forth 
in the P.E.T. Procedure overview found online at the Live From Mars
web site.  See:

To facilitate the process of posting P.E.T. proposals.... 
we will be using the following P.E.T. Proposal form.  Please be sure 
to fill in all details *before* posting. If several classes from the 
same school/location are participating, be sure to distinguish them by a 
**special name, class period or hour, etc.** so that their proposal remains 
uniquely identifiable.

All participants are asked NOT to comment on each other's proposals
UNTIL the DEBATE begins January 6th.  Further details about the 
debate and consensus reaching process will be posted to the 
discuss-lfm forum and the debate-lfm forum.

If you have questions, please post them to the discuss-lfm list
or send to my attention directly at
