work through the instructions on the activity.
This can be done using a table inserted into
a Microsoft Word document.

each of the articles you selected:
The article name, the publication date, and the newspaper in which they were
A brief summary of the contents of the article
The source of the information used in the article
Step 5: Write a Letter to the Editor of one of the newspapers you’ve selected. In 30
to 50 words, state why you agree or disagree with the article that was published.
You must mention information from the other article you selected in Step 3 above.
