Since each paragraph is only a few well written sentences long, this is do-able. FOLLOW THE RUBRIC. Want to do your best? Follow these tips: 1. If you have not yet found an appropriate article to use for this assignment, contact me today to get feedback. Make sure that you review the requirements for this assignment prior to submitting articles. Failure to find/use an acceptable article will result in failing this assignment. 2. You MUST attach your article to this assignment even if you submitted it in Week two. This is Rubric Item 1. Failure to do this is a 5 point penalty. Please be careful to remember this. 3.

Examples Paragraph 1: Paragraph one facts are NOT from your main article.
