Share news articles with your students in a very engaging, meaningful, and interactive way. Students don’t always have access to the news or don’t choose to read it independently, and by displaying it in the classroom in a very attention grabbing way they will! They’ll be able to read and engage with current events chosen by their teacher, peers, principle, etc. This Bulletin Board Kit has everything you need! *This resource now includes DIGITAL CURRENT EVENTS DISCUSSION SLIDES.

3 WAYS TO USE-
1. STUDENT CHOICE- Allow students the opportunity to choose if they want to read the articles in the morning, during stations, or as an early finisher activity. They could read, reflect on a response card, and put it in their numbered pocket. Use the cards to lead class discussions, and if someone hadn’t initially chosen an article they could choose to read it at a later point.
2. READING STATIONS-Select an article for everyone to read for the week. Again, students would respond on the response cards and put it in their numbered pocket. We used the responses to discuss, reflect, and debate! After the discussion they could change their view and explain why.
3. MULTIPLE CLASSES- The News Crew leaders in each class select articles for their peers to read during workstations. Each student will respond on a Google slide from the Current Events Discussion Slides resource now included. We use the slides to drive our class discussions in the same way the student response cards did.
