In this activity, students will use authentic news sources to find a current event that interests them and write a report. They will summarize the article, find three new vocabulary words, and make a connection (text-to-self, text-to-text, text-to-world). They will learn about the world around them while practicing valuable reading and writing skills. This current events template and rubric would be perfect to use for independent work, literacy centers, or a whole-group lesson.
