Product Description
This product can be used with an economics unit. Have students independently search for a current event news article of their choice. Integrate language arts by requiring students to summarize the article and explain their reasoning for choosing the article as well as how they think it could impact the world.

I have used this in the classroom in two different ways: one as a year-long assignment where one current event from the class is due per week, and where all current events where due at one time.

Students enjoy this assignment, especially when they are allowed to find a topic that interests them.
