Have you heard about CNN Student News???
If you are a middle school or high school teacher, you need to be using this resource. It is a 10 minute daily video that covers current events. It is produced by CNN and it is just fabulous.
I made up this worksheet for my students to record three interesting facts/ issues or events that were covered. It keeps my students accountable and I use it as a participation grade.
