PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Go beyond a basic read and brief questioning of everyday news events. This current event categorization chart will drive students deeper by challenging them to consider the type of event and the motivations for the media to share the story. Although current events are primarily covered in the social studies classroom, these categories fit any type of current event, in any discipline (science, math, English, electives, etc.) The chart provides you as a teacher with a platform from which to guide discussions about bias, multiple perspectives and impact. The categorization chart is common core compatible as students can be asked to make a claim, justify with evidence and explain their reasoning for the category they choose when classifying their current event. If you enjoy this resource, look for more products by Cutting Edge Classroom. Please provide feedback if you choose to use this item.
