Reading, Entertainment, History, Universal Truths, Government, and Observation.  (updated May 20, 2024 with .pdf files)
This assignment was designed to enable students to gather high-quality information about the world.  It is an older assignment designed for my Pre-AP II classes; however, many AP Language teachers have used the assignment for their classes over the years. You are welcome to update it to fit your classroom situation.  I would be pleased if you would credit me for the original idea.  Thanks.
