Teacher Review for CNN 10

This offers fantastic, balanced short news segments that my kids can relate to. It is nice that they balance bad news with special interest stories about kids and adults making a difference in the world.

How I Use It
I use this as a way for my students to connect with current events. Sometimes we use it to practice note taking. We use it to debate issues in the news. We use it to connect STEAM to ELA/SS.
My Take
I love that this is available free, with no commercials, to students. I appreciate the way it connects kids to the news in a student friendly format. They love the 10 second trivia and the puns.
