Get students involved in teaching their peers about the current events going on in the world! There are four (4) rubrics included, one for each quarter of the year. The first quarter rubric asks students to focus on a news story at the local level, the second quarter focuses on state-wide, third focuses on national, and fourth quarter focuses on international news. All rubrics are editable to put in your own personal touches depending on the location you are from!
This set of rubrics pairs well with the free Current Events Article Analysis worksheet found on TPT from Rachel Lynette: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Current-Events-113584
