Current Events Weekly Assignment
(due on Fridays)


Each week you will have a Current Events assignment due. You may choose among three main assignments.


1. NAMES IN THE NEWS:  This assignment will consist of five names (people, places or things) which are in the news during the week and their full definitions, including who, what, where, when, why, and how. This assignment must be handwritten and turned in on Friday at the beginning of class. There will be requirements given for the topics each week.







2. Cartoon Interpretation: Find a current editorial cartoon from either a local or a national news source. Complete a form for interpretation of the cartoon, and turn this in with a copy of the cartoon neatly attached to a full-sized (9 x 11 inches) piece of paper. Be sure to follow instructions given in class. (Cagle. com has a large collection of these cartoons. Be sure to choose a recent one --no older than TWO weeks.)


3. NEWS STORY ANALYSIS:  From a print source, obtain a news story (not in sports or entertainment). Fill out the current events news story form and a copy of the article neatly attached to a full-sized (9 x 11 inches) piece of paper.



You may choose one of these options each week, unless stated otherwise.
The assignment is due each Friday and is worth 10 points. No late assignments will be accepted unless you are absent on Friday.
This assignment will be accepted ONLY until Midnight on the date it is due (email submission – email a copy to yourself for verification)
The assignment is to be handwritten or emailed to me.
