This is a basic outline for students to complete in order to break away a current event. You can provide an article for them to read, or they can find their own. At the end, they them make "Time" cover to demonstrate their understanding of the article's importance. This is a Microsoft Word document, so it can be edited any way that works best for your students!
(This is also a great way to compare/contrast current, relevant topics to what you are learning about in your History or Government classroom.)
