This current events form will guide students through current news articles from magazines, newspapers or online news resources. It can be modified for any subject area. Page one uses a graphic organizer design to help students extract and organize critical information from science journals or news articles. On page two, students use summary writing and reflection to digest a news article of your choosing or theirs. This versatile activity works great as a weekly/monthly in-class assignment, an independent activity for extra credit, or as partner/group research. Also makes a great emergency sub plan. *Includes a simple rubric for easy grading.
