In this assignment, students must find a current event and answers questions on the event. They must also look up words they do not know, write a summary, writer their personal review, and put the place (Geography). There are 2 copies of this assignment provided. One I used for my general ed class and the second one I used for my Honors class.
I have used this in Middle and High school and had great success.
I have used it as homework, as well as class work when I have newspaper or the Internet.
