2nd Semester Notes
Current Event Instructions
Find an article in a newspaper, magazine, or online source and read it. It may be helpful to underline important facts and points/arguments the author makes as you read. When writing your current event cite the source at the top of the page in this order:
Author, "Title," Magazine/Newspaper name (or website address), date of publication.
Using your own words describe what happened in the article. Describe the most important information to give the reader a good understanding of the purpose of the article. DO NOT COPY ANY OF THE ARTICLE OR YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO.
Describe your personal feelings/reaction to the information in the article. Are you surprised by an event, happy or upset with an outcome, or is there anything you found particularly interesting in the article? Are there any questions you thought of when reading the article?
