What are acceptable sources for current events?
You may use the internet, television, and newspapers. Radio reports are not acceptable. When looking for a current event to write about ask yourself if the topic of the article is relevant to something we havediscussed in class. If the answer is NO, then that is a goodindicator that the article you chose is not appropriate for class. Use your logic...a sports, music, book, movie article or report would not be appropriate for use and result in a F on the assignment.Back to Top

If you can that would be great however, it is not a requirementas long as you provide me with the proper URL (if its an on-line source), television news source, or newspaper in which you found the source.Back to Top
