Current Events Assignment February 14-15

Go to one of the current even news source links on the left side of the blog and find a story that you think is interesting. Make sure it is a big enough story that you will be able to find it from at least two other news sites from different countries.

Read the story carefully in all three newspapers and write a post to your blog answering the following questions:

  1. What happened in the story?
  2. Where did the story take place?
  3. Is there a difference in the way the story is reported among the three sites? Explain.
  4. Can you find any words or phrases that show a bias? Explain
Make sure you write your post as a good paragraph. You will have two class periods to do this so take your time (especially you, boys!) 

I should be back Wednesday, tired and cranky. :)
