Blizzard Bag Assignments

 Day One:  Go to YouTube.com, search for a video related to the topic we covered in class the previous day or week.  Write down the information that was presented, if included news clips, primary sources, or all secondary source, if the video seems biased at all, and your overall opinion of the video.  You should watch a video or combination of videos that total 20 minutes in length for each day
*If you cannot access youtube, go to google video or yahoo video.
*If video cannot be accessed do a search for the topic and articles.  For example: Russian Revolution Articles.

Day Two:  Repeat Day One
Day Three:  Complete a News Assign.   We are increasingly relying on TV for our news, hence the weekly assignment.  Watch an interview show on either Fox NEWS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.  Comedy Central is not a news channel so you cannot choose The Daily Show.  Morning shows like Today or Good Morning America are also not acceptable choices.  When in doubt, ask.  Most of these shows can also be watched online.  Examples:  Meet the Press,  Hardball, Mitchell Reports, The Last Word,  The O’Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends, Huckabee, In the Arena, Piers Morgan, etc.  On our return you will turn in a sheet with the following information: Title of Show, Date of Show, Topic of Show, Guests (name and title/affiliation), Tone of interview and discussion,  Any political perspective/bias that you can detect.
