3. Writing

Using the 2 articles about leading and communicating during a crisis you read (see links above – also handed out in class): 

1.  Take key notes on both articles. No more than 1 page of key notes per article! (But it’s definitely okay if your notes fill up less than one page for each article.)

2. Write a 2-paragraph summary using your key notes. The summary should be a combination of the information from BOTH articles and should flow together. (Do NOT write 1 paragraph for each article.) It’s okay if you use more information from one article than the other.

3. Include 1 quote in the summary and use MLA intext citation. Your quote should be taken from one of the two articles. (You can include one quote per paragraph, but only one quote for the two paragraphs is required.)

4. Show your key notes AND your paragraphs to your writing mentor and then revise.

5. Print and bring a copy to class of your notes AND your paragraph to turn in.
