This current events packet has made current events so easy for me, and enjoyable for the students!
This document provides instructions for the current events process. The students are provided with a specific current events format that they must follow, and they are given an example to guide them. The teacher uses the rubric to grade the students written portion and oral presentation. Then, after receiving the teacher's feedback the student's complete the reflection to determine what they did well and how they can improve.
The directions sheet also provides access to my current events website, which provides guided directions (it's a webquest essentially) for the students if you want to do everything electronically. Emails need to be altered in the documents and for the website to fit your needs.
