Something to do during Sandy-

Hello everyone,

Assignment- Use your research skills to find something that is trending now. Could be from the weekend. Could be from last week. Then, use your writing skills to draft an essay of about 250 words that does the following:

  • Summarize the story.
  • Analyze the story- Ask yourself, why did this story trend?
  • Predict- What are the outcomes or implications of this story?
  • Cite- Credit your sources using our MLA Format
  • Tweet- Share your links with your twitter followers.

Feel free to continue to browse through twitter when this is complete. You don’t need to become involved in any discussion threads. Instead, use your twitter feed as a reader and find interesting things to read and learn.

Please stay safe during this storm.
