My students are hooked on CNN 10, formerly CNN Student News! It is a great, free online resource that is perfect to get students thinking about current events with a Common Core lens. This activity set has TWELVE templates to choose from and is aligned with Common Core Literacy and Writing standards for ELA, history, and science (NGSS).
In addition to receiving printable copies provided in PDF, this lesson was recently converted to GOOGLE 1:1 compatible templates for a completely GOOGLE Classroom ready lesson! Textboxes are already made in a colorful Google Slides Interactive Notebook format. As always, the text is bold in dark blue for easy, eye-catching online grading!
There are varying templates for teachers to implement depending on style and class ability level. In most cases students are required to:
✎ Support claims with evidence from the news
✎ Draw conclusions
✎ Illustrate data
✎ Map where the stories take place
✎ Summarize key information
✎ Reflect on class connections to the current event
Since students can access CNN Students News or CNN Ten at home this makes for an easy extra credit or homework assignment. Class discussions come easy with a great base of information from which to launch.
♥♥♥ We also have a best selling NEWSELA ARTICLE ANALYSIS RESOURCE BUNDLE! It includes 7 great templates for current event articles that fit perfectly with individual student reading levels!
