Great template for students to search for current events and practice analyzing and summarizing the news article!
I have used this with my students to have them practice looking at reliable sources to find current events. They look for news articles that are science based and then write a short summary about it. I have provided several different sources that students can use! Students can then practice reading about current events, informative and nonfiction texts that they will then pull information from to analyze and summarize.
I started this assignment the very first week of school and had the students turn in 1 news article every week. We were able to discuss how information is constantly changing and how you need to look at the evidence when forming your own opinions on certain subjects. You can easily adjust it to make it as easy or difficult as the student needs. For example, when I taught 7th grade students, they had to find articles that had a minimum of 3 paragraphs.
