Analyzing current events is both educational and engaging for students. Sometimes students need a little help choosing an appropriate article to analyze. Sometimes they chose articles that do not have a lot or detail or are well above their reading level. This assignment will help students to find a suitable article to read and analyze.
There are two versions of the assignment, one with grading points and one written as a checklist. Also enclosed is a list of 12 websites that have great science current event articles.
