Improve your student journalists' comprehension and writing skills a little at a time week over week with these no prep, highly-interesting, and challenging articles of the week for high school level. Each article is chosen based on topics related to any journalism program's core content.

Why article of the week? Reading pedagogy suggests that students are most successful with a text when they revisit it more than once with a different and meaningful purpose each time. The "article of the week" approach does that.

How is this article of the week resource different? With this resource, I've designed daily tasks unique to the articles linked in that give students a meaningful and skills-based reason to revisit the article of the week again each day. With the exception of the day students are answering the provided questions, the tasks can be completed in 10 minutes or so. It would be perfect for bell ringers, RTI, test tutoring, and more! It can be used in any subject wanting to get in more reading!

What content will students be held accountable for?

- Three vocabulary words each week for words in context

- Five text-based questions each week

- Figurative language

- Making connections with text to text, text to self, and text to world

Is it flexible, editable, and up-to-date? This is a set of 9 nonfiction articles that have been carefully curated and selected to be timeless, interesting, and grade-appropriate for high school journalism students. Everything in this resource is in 100% editable format. Additionally, this resource provides you two, flexible options for you to implement this article of the week program: Option #1 is the projectable questions and Option #2 is the printable or digital reader's notebook. I've also included a daily task outline to use in order to build on the reading and responding process each day - if you want to do it that way. This a really a one-stop, flexible resource for implementing a text-based daily reading program, article of the week, or reader's notebook.


1) Two formats of the projectable questions: PDF and PPT

2) Three formats of the printable reader's notebook in ink-friendly black and white: PDF, PPT, and Google.

3) Each article has questions written specifically for that article

4) All answers are included for the questions, vocabulary, and figurative language

5) Daily plan for reading each day in two formats: PDF and PPT

6) Rubric for easy grading

7) Mapping of weekly skills and topics for teacher prep

8) Link to articles

**Be sure to see each file's preview and description for a full list of topics and skills covered.
