Discussing current events in our communities offers rich learning experiences. In my grade 5/6 classroom, students are each assigned a week to present on a current event topic of their choice.

In this package you will find:
1.) Instructions on how to choose a news article from a reputable source in student friendly language.
2.) A worksheet that asks students to analyze the article using the 5W format + providing their opinion
3.) Assessment criteria for teachers
4.) Student Self- Assessment

This file is available in an editable .docx format. Please take what you can from this document, and feel free to make changes so that this assignment better suites your teaching style and the needs of your students.

Enjoy the rich discussions that arise out of this learning opportunity! Happy Teaching!
