Want a no-prep Article of the Week system? Ready to integrate more non-fiction reading and speaking into your class?

Use this Article of the Week program to give students room for differentiation, choice, and articles that they’re ACTUALLY interested in! (Don’t work harder than your students with a labor-intensive version of AoW!) In this version, students choose, read, annotate, and present their articles to peers.

You can modify and implement this system to fit whatever length of time you want. I’m using it by assigning about 3 students to present per week, so that we can get through an entire class in a 10-week quarter. (You could also make it a partner assignment!)

This 12-page download includes…
• Student Directions: Explains the procedure AND quality expectations fully
• Student Signup Sheet: Build your routine and track who’s going next
• Rubric: Easy teacher assessment for in-class grading!
• Example: Students will read (and annotate) a sample health article and critique a filled-out graphic organizer as a mock example of the assignment
• Extension Activities: Directions and a list of 9 optional extra-credit opportunities!
• Bonus: BOTH the editable version AND the ready-to-print PDF are included!

(Psst: You might also like the sister project of this AoW system, my Non-Fiction Article Superlatives Project, in which students choose, read, and give “awards” to different articles!)
