Issues that concern you



Are you concerned about the federal deficit, the class-size amendment, war, global warming, the economy? Look through today’s newspaper and find three articles about issues that worry you. Write the main idea of the article and list the reasons that people your age should be
concerned about this issue. Gather in small groups and discuss ways you could enact change through the political process. Write a newspaper article set in the future that describes what your group did and how it made a difference in your community, state or the entire country. Share your article and your thoughts here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
