Every Tuesday and Thursday, we will have an in-class discussion on current events going on in the world around us and how it relates to our curriculum. Your task between those times will be to search national and international media outlets to find events of regions and global importance, complete a formal write-up of the article, and be prepared to present and discuss your article(s) with your peers in class among other requirements as well as "end of the week" Current Events quizzes.
