This week we are sharing a great resource for secondary students. Student News Daily is a free source of current event articles that are written specifically for students in grades 6-12. There is no account required to view articles and every article has discussion questions to enhance comprehension.
To get started, visit: http://www.studentnewsdaily.com/
The website is updated daily with new articles. Student News Daily has weekly features that go beyond normal current events, for example on Wednesdays, they feature an article that is an example of media bias and on Fridays, they have an article featuring an editorial cartoon.
Click on any article from the homepage to expand it:
At the bottom of each article, there are questions, as well as relevant background information and videos if applicable.
The questions for this particular article also include some reading strategies for students since this article has difficult subject matter.
I hope you add Student News Daily as a resource for current events and global studies in your classroom.
