Low literacy
How I Use It
I use it daily for the last 10 minutes of my Literacy in Content class (social studies literacy) to give my students the opportunity to be informed of current events. Sometimes we discuss what's happening, but often I just use this for students to watch and listen for themselves.
My Take
Most of my students are engaged and enjoy watching the different stories. I like that the stories vary in topic and subject. The kids really like the 10 Second Trivia.
