How I Use It
I use DOGO News in my 6th grade Literacy class. I begin the class with a teacher led article that is relevant to what we are studying or what is going on in the world at that time. After the first article, I allow the students to find their own article to read independently.
My Take
I really enjoy DOGO News because there the website will read the article to the students. The read aloud voice isn’t great, but the students really enjoy having it read to them. The students also really enjoy the video that goes along with each article. The best part about the website is that it is great for advanced learners as well as ELL and special education students because they can choose to have it read to them. There are also activities for the students at the end of each lesson.
