Product Description
This includes a generic handout (useful for geography, world history, US history, government and/or economics) and set of instructions that are useful for high school current events. The file includes:

blank current event form
instructions for completing the current event form
annotated current event form (with instructions as to what to write where)

I use this with my 12th grade economics and 11th grade U.S. history students. Students are responsible for finding, reading and annotating a news article (we practice this in class). Then, students complete the write-up form. The write-up form includes space for source information, context of the article, summary of the article, and a connection to the curriculum. For the connection, students explain how the article is an example of any of the key terms of concepts that we have been learning in class.

Students present these articles to the class; we have 3 - 4 presentations each day. Students can use the write-up form to help them with the presentation. Then, I quiz students on the basic topics of each week's current event presentations.

In the past, I've also added a section to the write-up form for identifying the main idea of the article.
