Product Description
Current events are an essential component of any social studies curriculum. This assignment is designed to invite students to delve into the current events of the world around them. Students are required to compose a summary of their article, identify key vocabulary words, and explain the event's overall importance. I used this assignment as a current events journal, but it could also be used for an online discussion forum, preparation for an oral presentation, or as the basis for whole or small group class discussion. This product also includes a grading rubric.
