Class #6 - Current Events Investigation

LT: I can determine the central ideas of a news article.

Good morning, young citizens!

Today, I've selected four news articles. Each student will choose one of the following articles for a short current events investigation. You don't need to print the article. You can simply read it on your iPad. The substitute will provide you with a Current Events Investigation handout (You can see it below). Read the article, complete as much of this handout as possible and turn it in at the end of the period. This is not HW. This is just a way to gauge your ability to read a news article and determine the central ideas. Give it your best shot!

Today's Articles:

  1. I was finding intimate event venues for my engagement but had a tough time in finding affordable venues. My cousin told me to book it from Eventup.com. Truly, this site has a huge list of popular and affordable party venues nationwide.
