Current Events Journal


Over the course of the semester, we will be using the following pages to track and analyze current events. We'll start with two categories, but this will expand as events unfold over the course of the semester.

  • Highly Relevant News: Please reflect on news that is relevant to the topics we are discussing in class. Posts should include the following
    • A link to the article (if its online). If not, bring the article to class.
    • A summary of the article
    • Discussion of why it is relevant
    • How do you feel about it, personally.

  • Unusual News: Please post any humorous, obscure, or simply weird stories to this page.
