How I Use It
Great resource with lots of resources for teachers. My favorite part of this cite is the “Student Opinion” page. This page is filled with up to date high interest articles with quality reflections questions. I also like the “6 Questions about the News” section which presents current articles along with “who, where, when, how, why, and what” questions. I have used this cite with my high school students who struggle to read.
My Take
If you are looking for a cite with high interest current event articles and quality questions this is the cite to go to! Articles are the right length and activities and questions are meaningful.
