The Current Event Summaries can be on any topic related to Fossil Fuels, Energy and Society that are currently in the news.

These summaries should be typed and about 2-3 paragraphs in length.

These need to be put into your own words, except for material that is in quotations.

You need to cite at least 2 credible news sources for each of your Current Event Summaries.

 

First, you do not need to include the actual news story, but rather just make a citation to it in such a way that someone could go and find it online. Depending on what is given in the story you could put the author name, the title of the news story, the date posted, the news source, and the website.

For example,

Smith, R, “Saudi Arabia and Russia meet to control oil prices”, The New York Times, Sept. 3, 2016, http://xyz

 

 

As an added note, it would be good to have a brief title on the top of your Current Event Summary.  Also, your CES topics should in some way be  related to

energy, fossil fuels and society.  It could also involve environmental aspects related to these topics.
