8th Grade Social Studies Extra Credit Opportunity

Posted on

The final extra credit opportunity for social studies is to find a?Newspaper article from the previous two weeks to summarize. The article can be on politics, history, science, or any other academic topic. Please see me for any questions on whether an article is acceptable. Students will write a one paragraph (6-8 sentences) summary and reaction to the article.

In addition to the current event write up students will research an important topic from the Cold War era: the Overthrow of the government in Iran in 1953. Students will read about the event, summarize it, and state how it changed relations between the United States in Iran, which shows how it still affects the world today. The summary should be no less than one paragraph.
