Extra! Extra!  Read All About It!

In the News

Each week one student will look for a newspaper article to share with the class.  I will send home a reminder the Thursday before it is due.  For example, if a student is due to share on Thursday, October 16th, I will send a reminder on Thursday, October 9th.  You can choose any article within the last month of your due date (ex. September 16th- October 16th).  Regular newspapers and online newspapers can be used with parent permission.  Find an article that is interesting to you, read it, take some notes (I will give you a guide to help you summarize) and be prepared to share it with the class on Thursday.  Please use paper no bigger than 11 x 17 inches.  Please make your presentation less than 3 minutes and we will have a short class discussion after you present.
