PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As a social studies and language arts teacher, I always did a current event activity with my students. At first, I would have them choose an article each week, summarize it for the class, and ask the class a question. BORING.

Now - I use Bloom's Taxonomy to up the higher level thinking, get the class involved, and make the overall presentation more interesting.

This activity has students choose a current event, then develop 6 mini-activities to lead their classmates in (one activity for each level of Bloom's). I have included a description of each level, sample verbs, and examples of activities so students have an idea of what is expected. There is also a graphic organizer for the student to record his/her ideas and information about the current event and a rubric to aid in grading.


I have found this to be a great switch from my old method - I have each student present one current event a quarter. The students love leading the class, and the variety of activities keeps the class engaged.
