How I Use It
I show CNN10 at the beginning of every class. Sometimes I have the students complete a graphic organizer or short written response while/after watching, but sometimes we just listen and watch. The newscast is amazingly educational. CNN10 covers very single academic subject. Carl Azuz is very entertaining as well. My students love it. For their final project, I require that students make their own CNN10 style video newscast concerning scarcity of medical supplies and COVID. They are having fun trying to make their CNN10-style newscasts!
My Take
Excellent! Next year I will be teaching world history and plan to use it again at the start of each class!
