As you wrap up your writing on a current social issue, consider the following:
Who are the people involved in the social issue? Is there a group that has more power? A group that is being oppressed, othered, exploited?
How is the topic typically talked about? In the news, on social media, etc.
Deeper analysis: Institutions involved? Are there certain ideologies that justify how people, the environment, etc are being treated?
Looking for solutions: What are people already doing? Activists? Students? Community members? Organizations?
Is there something else, like a personal experience or creative solution, that you want to offer?

Hey Period 3,
Use today as a writing day for your newspaper. Remember that your newspaper will eventually cover culminating projects 1 and 2. Our focus right now is #2 (on social issues). Our due date for this will be Thursday. Remember to come up with a creative title and change any images on the template you are using!
An assignment will be up on Schoology for you to submit your work as a file. I'd prefer a .pdf!!
See you all tomorrow.
