Unfortunately, I will not be class today. As was discussed last week, when I was looking for your input, I am at the Board Office with other members of the School Improvement team. Even with my absence, my expectations for your behaviour remain the same.
Being an informed citizen means knowing what is going on in our government, our country, and our world. One way to stay informed is by reading current events (as found in Newspapers, Magazines, and on Television). The Current Events Presentation is meant to encourage you to be informed of what’s going on in the world today.
You will need the following handouts:
Overview of the Assignment
Current Events Assignment Format and Checklist
Current Events Organizer
Current Events Rubric
Please spend the period researching and preparing an article that will be shared with the class over the next few weeks.
Before you begin, spend the first half of the period working your way through the Current Events Organizer, by practicing on an important event that I have prepared for you (the blog post below). We will be taking this up during tomorrow's class.
