HGov: Current Events

current events11


Current Events is an integral component to studying and applying the fundamentals of United States government and the political system. The idea is to afford you the opportunity to follow important events and issues arising in the United States and provide commentary and insight, making connections to Government course content.

Get in the Habit of Reading/Watching the News

Ways to follow current events:

  1. Watch an evening network news program. Local news is great for weather, sports, and local soft stories, but they do not cover politics and governmental events like the networks do.
  2. Read the Washington Post or the New York Times. Read the editorial and opinion section as well as letters to the editors.
  3. Read the front page section of http://www.msn.com, or
  4. Watch C-SPAN and CSPAN-2 for coverage of the House of Representatives and the Senate. In addition, there are excellent evening and Sunday programs on the Supreme Court and the White House.
  5. Read weekly news magazines such as TimeNewsweek, or U.S. News and World Report.
  6. Listen to a radio talk show. There are numerous programs and hosts available to choose from.

Solar Total Eclipse 2017

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.
