Product Description
Perfect for any civics or upper level social studies class, this weekly current events assignment requires students to keep on top of the news. Get students thinking critically about world and local news. Challenge them to apply the constitution to daily events. Teach them to develop critical analysis skills to determine bias. Help them develop their own political opinion.

This assignment instructs students to pick 3 articles a week: 1 local, 1 global, and 1 of their own choice. Students then answer questions about main idea, fact and opinion, author bias, event sequencing, cause and effect, and Constitution application on each article. For a summative assessment, students must lead a 10 minute class discussion on any 1 of their chosen articles.
