Each class period we watch CNN10 (a 10 minute news program for students).  Choose one news story to write about in your News Journal.  In one paragraph tell what the story was about and your thoughts about it. The Journal is due twice a month (15th and 31st).  To MAKE-UP a missed day, find a news source of your choice and read / watch a news story and write about it in your "News Journal."    CNN10 is at this site: http://www.cnn.com/cnn10
