NewsCurrents uses current events to teach history, geography, civics, critical thinking, language arts, vocabulary, science, and much more.
Each issue is written on three learning levels so it can be used from grades 3 to 12. The format makes it ideal for today's differentiated classrooms. It is also used extensively for ELL, gifted and talented, and special education.
Does It Work?
The teacher's guide gives you everything you need to conduct a teacher-directed discussion about important stories in the news, as well as educational stories related to the arts, science, health, and more. Each story is written on three learning levels with discussion questions and background information built in.
Students focus on the visual images while they listen and discuss. You will be amazed at how your students build background knowledge, language proficiency, and thinking skills, with regular use of NewsCurrents!
