The writing assignment is based on a current event article that relates to any topic that we covered in class. You should read a periodical (Ex. Newsday) and select an article that deals with the subject and submit it with your writing assignment. The paper will be 700 words in length (about 2-3 pages) and should be structured in three parts. Each part can be one or more paragraphs. The first part is a description of the subject matter. You can use the textbook and class notes of our discussion of the subject. The second part is a summary of the article and how it relates to the topic we covered in class. The third part of the paper is your opinion of the subject, if you think it is fair/just.
