Current EVENTS JOURNAL:
We will be keeping a current events journal in class for the second quarter. Each student will be expected to find on global news related item each week. Sometimes the topic will be assigned other weeks they will be able to choose the topic. THERE IS NO US news in this journal.
Each entry needs to be set up as follows:
Name of article:
Source of Article:
Map of the location: (you can draw this or print it out)
Summary of the article: 7-10 sentences in script
Your reaction: to the news event and what should the US role be in foreign policy.
The first entry will be due on Tuesday November 22. The topic is the civil war in Syria. You can use the article we started in class from the BBC to get some background information on the happenings in Syria. This BBC article is hyperlinked here.
