Current Events
It's important to know what's going on in the world. Often we get used to only keeping up with local news, but we should be aware of the bigger picture.

Find a news story from one of the following websites. You can choose a local, state, national, or world story. The story cannot be about Pop Culture (e.g., What is Kim Kardashian going to name her baby?) or Sports (e.g., The Packers won last night).

You may only submit one Current Events per month for extra credit, although I do encourage you to keep up with the news regularly just for the benefit of being a more informed citizen.

Write your responses in complete sentences and avoid responses like "I thought this was interesting because I liked it." Put some time and thought into your responses.

I do give more points for more detailed responses, so don't think that simply typing a sentence to fill in the box will get you the most amount of points!

Your Thoughts: Your thoughts need to be about the article and how you feel about its contents. Do you get the feeling that there may be some media bias within the article? Include why or why not. Your sentences need to be detailed about the article and not filled with statements like: "It was great!" or "I liked it" or "It was stupid" or other generic statements. I want to know that you are talking about the events. Do not conclude your thoughts with "These are my thoughts" or "That's how I feel", etc. *
