Hello Regents students,
Hope you're enjoying your Saturday. Sorry to be posting this later than I promised.
Here is a link to a set of New York Times articles. All of them have been chosen because they describe recent news involving people who are your age.
This is your assignment:
1. Go to the link, then choose and read at least two of the articles you find there. Choose the ones you find most interesting.
2. Write a five-paragraph response in which you summarize the two articles and describe your reactions to them. Here's an outline for your response:
I. Introduction: Briefly describe each article and explain any similarities that they have.
II. First Body Paragraph: Summarize the first article.
III. Second Body Paragraph: Summarize the second article.
IV. Reactions: Describe your reactions and thoughts about the two articles. Especially note any connections that you see between the two articles.
V. Conclusion: Wrap up with a summary of your response and a closing thought--something that might make me see the world just a little differently after reading your paper.
You can type or handwrite your homework. If you would like, you can e-mail me your homework at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you choose to print out your homework at school, you must do so by 3:15 on Wednesday.
Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
See you Wednesday. Have a great time with the long weekend.
Go Giants! Go Yankees! Go Yale!
