A current event is due the Friday of the 3rd week of every 6 weeks. The current event needs to be about the subject area we are learning about that 6 weeks. Current events can be obtained from newspapers, magazines, Science programs on television or movies that are related to our subject area. The internet may also be a resource - a copy of the article must be included with the assignment.
Students need to write a paragraph about the content of the article summary, what they learned from reading or watching it and what they found interesting about the topic. Television programs or movies need to include a time and date the program was watched and have a parent signature. Other current events can be used if they are pre-approved by myself.
Just remember S (summary), L (learn) and I (interesting)!
