Weekly Project

Current Events

Students are to find a recent news article and summarize it. They will need to use Google Slides to write their final summary and include a link to the article they have chosen.

Their summary should include:

  • Who? (writer, subject(s) of the article, key individuals, people or countries affected by the news)
  • Where? (city/country)
  • When? (important dates mentioned)
  • What? (What is the main idea? How does this news affect the rest of the world?)
  • Why? (Why did you choose this article? Why is it important? Why do some groups of people agree of disagree with points made in the article?)
