   APUSH current event instructions:

Each week APUSH students will complete a current event assignment. Each student will find a news-worthy article on a current event from a reputable news outlet (examples- foxnews.com, cnn.com, msn.com, New York Times, Time magazine, etc.), and write a summation/ analysis of the article. The article must contain an event which has taken place in the United States or that the United States is involved with in the international community. Areas of focus can be either political (dealing with government or political figures) or economic (dealing with business and the economy). The submitted current most be in the following format;

-Source: Title of the article, date article was written, author's name, and publisher.

-Summary: This portion must contain half a page of a summary of the article (what is it about?). The second half of the page will be your analysis (what impact will this event have on the U.S. and its citizens? Or you could also connect it to something we are talking about in our class).

-NO ARTICLES ABOUT SPORTS TEAMS, GOSSIP, HUMAN INTEREST, OR FASHION PLEASE!!!
