Transcripts - National article 1 2nd grade

  • 1. Name: ___________________ # _____ Date: ____________________ September 13, 2010 Current Event: National Article This week you will be looking for a current event that is about something happening within our nation (anywhere in the U.S.). The story you choose can be about the government or different problems they may be trying to solve, an issue from another state, or a story about a person who is being noticed, good or bad, for something they have done. Remember to choose an article that is no more than 2 weeks old. Great places to look would be the Benicia Herald, the Vallejo Times Herald, online, like Scholastic News, or even in magazines. Many newspapers have online versions that they update daily if you do not subscribe to a newspaper. Another great place to look is the public library. They subscribe to many of the local newspapers and also have internet access available. After you have chosen your story, complete the organizer on the back of this page to help you organize your information. Make sure you are able to tell about who the article is about, what the article talks about, and where it takes place. You should also note where you found the article and what date it was printed or published. Have fun and happy current event hunting! Remember: • A summary is a paragraph that includes only the main details of the article. Only include the information that is the most important and leave out the smaller details. • The story or article you choose must be current! You cannot choose a story that is more than 2 weeks old. • Your current events are due Friday. When you turn them in they should include a completed back page and the article or story / information about the news program. • Have a parent proofread your writing to check for spelling and grammar mistakes.
