PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Every year our school celebrates Newspaper in Education Week. I customized the week to tie into topics we've discussed in our 8th Grade U.S. History class. Students will use the newspaper to connect to topics such as movement, push-pull factors, rebellion, economic influences, and trade.

I've done this for an entire week, by starting out each day watching CNN Student News [http://www.cnn.com/studentnews/] which is 10 minutes long, discuss points of interest, distribute the newspapers to students and give them 10 minutes of quiet reading time, and then providing students time to work on their Newspaper in Education tasks. I only have 42 minute class periods so this has typically taken my students a week to complete (all in class).

Included in this product are the following 7 tasks:

What Makes Your Hometown Unique?
Trade Webs
Economic Influences
Rebellion
Someplace New
Interactions
History in the Making

This has always been an enjoyable week because the students are actively working and I get a chance to communicate with each student throughout the week about what they've found and why it is important.
