This is a pair of worksheets (printable 2 to a page), one that goes with the CNN 10/Student News program, and one that goes with BBC 6 Minute English videos, both available daily for free on YouTube. Active Listening Quick Response Sheets are terrific bellwork to get students’ minds engaged and busy. They also make a good break from the norm. In my gifted elementary classes, my older students keep a current events journal, with entries from the CNN 10, which gives them a good historical reference for the year once it is over. I use the BBC 6 Minute English sheets with my 2nd and 3rd grade gifted students, as a fun way to introduce new vocabulary. I HIGHLY recommend that you ALWAYS preview the day’s topic since they are sometimes better saved for more mature audiences.
