Finding Current Events in Science


  • Find recent news articles that relate to your subject. These articles must be from reliable newspapers, magazines, or other publications.
  • Cut out the articles with the date and source (newspaper’s name and date cut out from the newspaper).
  • If using a magazine, articles must be complete pages (do not cut out – use whole page with name of magazine and date).
  • Make sure you find articles from CREDIBLE sources. For instance the TV guide is not credible, but Popular Science or scientific journals are considered valid. If in doubt, ask your teacher. No more than three per publication.
  • The articles must be current, no older than January 1st, 2012.

*Be sure to follow your teacher's formatting directions and refer to a rubric for information about how your grade will be calculated.
