Accept issue 5 assignment
Critique issue 4
Distribute issue 4

Wednesday- Today, we will take a look at the digital copy of the newspaper and set some goals for issue 5 based on what we see in issue 4.

In service of that goal, I want each of you to answer a question using your own words on this page. Please do not use Google translate or another language translation service, as it is more important to assess your ability without assistance.

Friday- Today we need to distribute the newspaper to all of the classrooms on campus. Additionally, please submit a news tip.
