Journal Instructions

These may not be older than six months and must be from legitimate news sources (Wikipedia is not a legitimate source, nor is History.com). In the article, the author must be either discussing a historical topic, and/or using it to support an opinion about some current event. Either way, the historical topic must be one that we have already discussed in class.

 You must find an article that is focused on a history event or person that we have discussed in class. It can be discussing the topic as a pure history lesson, or it can be discussing it to make a point about a current event, but it must be FOCUSED on the history topic. Do not send an article in which YOU are the one making a connection to a topic we discussed in class, the author must be doing so. 

Further, keep in mind that the easiest way to do this is to do a Google NEWS search for an event or person that you found interesting. USE THE NEWS FILTER when doing your search so that it returns only NEWS stories.
