Regents Homework

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  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!
Mr. Toomajian
