Current Events Canadian Canada version!
This set of 13 graphic organizers and four activities will help differentiate current events topics and give the teacher and student a broad range of choice when choosing news stories to research. The four activities expand the possibilities even more!
The thirteen current event topics, one for each organizer are: Entertainment, the Environment, History, Political, Science, Sports, Technology, Weather, Your Community, Your Country, Your Province or Territory, the World, and Canada and the World. Students choose a current events topic and complete the organizer. They can use the internet, television, newspapers, or magazines - this is up to you the teacher.
Also included are four activities: Discussion Topics (seven) which can be used how you wish, either in groups or with the class, or even as short essay assignments; Compare and Contrast in which students choose two current event topics from different fields to complete the organizer; using a News Website (approved by you) and evaluating content; and “Present Your Topic” in which students present their summarized current event topic to two other students and an adult (e.g. a family member or another teacher).
