Create three questions for each of the articles. Questions should be "Who, " "What," "When," "Where," "Why," or "How" questions. I will select questions from student created questions for an end-of-the-week quiz on all three news articles.

Examples from "Two Schools in Afghanistan, One Complicated Situation":
What controversy is described in the article? Who is at the center of the controversy? Why is this a controversy? When was the school in Bozai Gumbaz completed? Where are most of Mortenson's schools located (List two countries)? How could Mortenson be better assured his schools would be used?
