Are you looking for an engaging weekly current events assignment? I use the BBC homepage in which the world is divided into regions to help unpack this assignment. Students then work in groups of 7 covering North America, South America, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia/New Zealand. Within these groups members then cover up to 4 categories (politics, business, entertainment, science/nature) depending on group size and choices.This ensures news worthy and diverse topics are covered. I have groups present as news anchor team. The BBC is a good starting point for students but I encourage them use news worthy sites along with providing clear academic citations. This can be easily used with multiple language web and print resources and provides a good scaffold throughout the school year. I have used multiple versions over the years and found it very easy for students to follow and become engaged.
