Find an online news article that is focused on a history topic that we have discussed in class (an event or person). It can be discussing the topic as a pure history lesson. OR it can be discussing a historical event to make a point about a current event, but it must be focused on the history topic, not the current event.  Do not send an article in which YOU are the one making a connection between a current event and a topic we discussed in class, the author must be doing so–and they must be mainly focused on the historical event, not the current one. 

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–which is the History Channel’s website). The historical topic must be one that we have already covered in the first 2 modules.

Further, keep in mind that the easiest way to do this is to do a Google NEWS search for an event or person that we covered in lecture. (Do a Google search for a topic that interested you, then limit the results by clicking on the “news” filter).
