This activity is a great way to incorporate student choice, current events and non-fiction reading into your classroom! Students will access a variety of authentic resources online and use this template to guide them through the reading. It comes with two versions for maximum differentiation from novice learners up to native / heritage speakers! It also provides student with choice, as they get to choose the article that interests them! The best part is that this template can become part of your routine and the activity can be repeated with new articles each time. Great as a sub plan, filler activity, or in a dual-language social science class.
Online readers include: ¿Qué Tal? magazine series, Yahoo en Español, Veintemundos, and NewsELA in Spanish.
Written for a class with multiple levels ranging from novice to natives. Students will access different resources based on their chosen or assigned reading level. This version includes sentence starters for novices and asks upper-level students to produce more output.
Written for Spanish III and up. Students will read free articles in Spanish from NewsELA.com. This version is much less scaffolded than version A.
