No class on Friday, Feb. 26
Due: Monday, Feb. 29
An important national leader has just woken up from a weeklong coma. She needs to be informed immediately on what is going on in the news because vital decisions must soon be made.
Your assignment – and you must accept it – is to brief her on the news:
- On Feb. 26, Friday, pick up a free paper copy of The New York Times from the lobby of SRH, the Business School, the Student Center or from another campus building.
- Write a 350-word capsule summary of the news on Page 1 of the Times, including every story. You need not include stories in the refer box at the bottom of the page.
- Paraphrase. Write in complete sentences using correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. Do not merely copy the headlines or the first line in the story.
Good luck, Jim.
