10 Current Event Online Articles

Class Website Current Events and Posts:

  1. Login to your class account.
  2. Read the most recent articles. Comments for each article will only be allowed 72 hours after they are posted.
  3. Once you have read the article you will need to post your comments. Comments should show your understanding of the articles topic. You can use this time to raise questions, make analogies or propose an opposing viewpoint.
  4. Remember each student must comment on at least 10 articles that will be posted on the class website. You will need to read and post comments a minimum of two per week. You are allowed two exempt weeks to be used if you are on vacation or are experiencing technical difficulties.

If computer access will be a problem for any of you, contact Mr. Montano ASAP. I look forward to working with you next school year in our AP Government class. The successful completion of this summer assignment will get you off to a great start. Have a great summer!
