Topic: Articles in the newspaper today
July 21, 2019 / By Christine Question:
My teacher has given us these directions but i don't quite understand it. Can someone help me explain by what the directions mean? also help me find an article that i can write about?
The objective of this assignment is for you to discover why a newspaper article written within the past six months relates to a person, place, experience, or the like that occurred from 1970 to the present.
In writing the Essay you will describe/summarize the chosen article and relate information from the past that gives the subject relevancy today.

I think its something like this:
First, you need to find a newspaper article written within the past 6 months.
Then you need to describe and summarize:
-How the newspaper story relates to a person from the 1970's to now
-How the newspaper story relates to a place from the 1970's to now
-How the newspaper story relates to an experience from the 1970's to now
You have to make sure you write about how that person/place/experience (from 1970'2 to now) relates to your newspaper article.
I hope this helps clear things up a bit, and good luck in your essay!
Okay. First, pick an acticle dating from between the 1970's-today. Then just give a summary of it... a summmary is a few sentences that describes the main idea. remember that word choice is important, get rid of words you don't need. After you summarize, tie the information in the article bakc to today. Basically that means if you have an article from the '80's about global warming [idk, i just made that up] you could say that we're still dealing with it today. Then maybe explain why it was important then and why it is important now.Try to connect and use specific details. I hope this helps!!
