Since this is a going to be a short week I am going to push back the continuation of excel. Lots of reasons for this. Instead, today we are going to re-visit a web site that has been super important to me for many many years. Last Friday, with Mr. Dinardo, you completed the assignment below in a word document. Today you are going to move those summaries over into weebly. Please re-read the assignment below to remind yourself of the assignment.
The website and newspaper, LA YOUTH, has been around for 25 years. What's so special about it is that it is written by teens in Los Angeles. It is unique to Los Angeles and has been providing a voice to the experiences of Los Angeles teens for more than two decades. Sadly, this month it is coming to a close. Financial hardship is forcing it to close it's doors and shut down the newspaper.
What I would like you to do today, is visit www.layouth.com and read no less than three articles. Search through the homepage, search the "archives" and more. Then, go to your weebly blog and do the following:
Write a summary of at least three of the articles you read. Explain how they relate to you, what you found interesting, and add a picture.
It's very important not to steal the words and pictures of others, so I will show you how to cite your sources today after you have had a chance to get started reading.
Once you finish this assignment you may use Brainpop.
