News articles inform us about the world we live in. They shape our views, increase our intelligence, and enhance our ability to think about other people's perspectives. Plus, they help us learn!
This Week's Prompt:
Find a full news article to read. It can be about any topic, but it should be recent (within the past month). Write a summary of what the news article was about. Your summary should recap the main ideas, not retell the whole article.
