Current Events Assignment
Please do not talk at this timeMay 22 Sign up for a group on the board. This group will look at a series of articles from a particular region we have studied. These articles are about things going on in these countries Right Now! Once you have a group, choose a job: Reader (1 – 2 people) – reads the articles out loud to the whole group. Scribe (1 – 2 people) - records important information in Cornell note form from the articles. Public Relations Specialist (1 person)- using info from the notes and input from the group, this person writes the text for the Public Service Announcement on your groups country Artist (1 person)- illustrates the text of the PSA with pictures, symbols and images that help illuminate the most important info
Procedure: Get a set of articles on the country for your group. Have the readers read these out loud to the group as the scribes record the most important information. While the readers read, the group should discuss what the articles are saying and what should be written down in the notes. Artists should be thinking about what images and pictures will help illustrate this info. When you have read at least 3 articles, look at all your information and consider what is most important.
Design a PSA- a Public Service Announcement A PSA is a short brochure that tells the public something they need to know, like how to protect yourself from Swine Flu or what to do during an earthquake. You will make a PSA on your country and what is going on there. Use your PSA to answer this question: What do the American people need to know about this country to be educated and informed on world events?
PSA Looks- PSA can be posters or Pamphlets Title/ Pictures
