This internet-based activity allows students to investigate the current news and reports from a selection of kids news outlets. The student handout provides the web links and guided questioning in a real-world data reporting format. Students are prompted to complete their investigation of the news and then to share with a classmate, a group, or the whole class.
Wrap-up questions are also included for students to complete after the class shares out their news reports.
Teach notes provide step-by-step directions.
This is designed for use in a high school Geography course, but could be used as a current event activity or a review of Europe in any course. It would also be appropriate for higher level, honors, or GT middle school students. A Real World activity with a 21st Century twist!
This is one activity from a COMPLETE Unit on European Geography that is available at my store!
Welcome to A Lesson Plan for Teachers!
This store is set up to provide buyers with quality Social Studies and Language Arts resources as well as great tools for the new teacher and for classroom organization.
With 12 years of teaching experience in grades 6-12, I have worked with all levels of students from AP courses to Collaborative classes, and I have been a mentor to a number or new and student teachers. In addition, I published my book, A Lesson Plan for Teachers, outlining key topics that are often discussed by new teachers as the pitfalls of the discipline.
Follow my blog, www.alessonplanforteachers.blogspot.com for updates and discussion on those key topics along with specials and freebies!
