How I Use It
I am in charge of our daily news show at school. I encourage my students to review TweenTribune to locate kid-appropriate news stories and incorporate them into our broadcast. They also learn the structure of a news story from reading Tween-Tribune articles and apply that to writing their own news stories for the show.
I love that the site is interactive and has built-in comprehension assessments and checks for students as they read. It's leveled and also has a Spanish option for some ELL students. I have used it for years and have never been disappointed.
