Just about every day, you will be asked to complete a current event assignment on the blog. These involve you doing a little bit of reading, answering a few questions, or giving me a summary of the news story. These are simple assignments that really only require you to do two things: (1) read something and (2) just tell me what the story was about. Begin by choosing one of the three stories listed below.
