Introduce your students to authentic newspapers and current events throughout the Spanish-speaking world by assigning this yearlong activity.
Each week, students are required to read and complete three of the activities listed on the student sheet from a Spanish-speaking newspaper. Each specific activity requires students to read a certain amount of articles or sections of the newspaper and write a reaction or response to each reading.
This activity uses the list of online news sources, which is included in this document, or students may use a hard copy of a Spanish newspaper, if this is available in your area.
Each activity requires that the student write a response or reaction to the news as well as a comparison to their own community.
