How I Use It
Makes a great approach as a springboard for large group instruction, leading into small group discussions after showing the video. Captures students interest with the video which leads to students developing their own newscasts which is further application of the news.
My Take
Well-developed approach to creating a deeper understanding of current news while engaging students through a video newscast. Great for all types of learners since a transcript is also a part of the segment. Great springboard for discussions and examples for students to create their own newscasts. Great resources connected with the Common Core.
