This Current Events Summary is an excellent tool for students to get involved with the news and the current events of the week. A simple writing format helps students find, summarize, and write opinions about current news stories and current events. I find this activity to be a practical filler for various social studies courses.
- Simple student directions: Find, Highlight, Summarize, Importance, Opinion
- Student writing forms (2 pages)
