We received a few requests from teachers asking about news sources for students. Below are the two platforms that come to mind when talking about websites that provide news content curated sceptically for students. Share with us if you have others suggestions to add to this list.
1- Time Edge
‘TIME Edge is the premier digital news source developed specifically for middle school students. Build student literacy skills with close-reading assignments. Get ideas for tying history and science lessons to current events. Measure student comprehension with ready-to-use assessments.’
CNN Student News is a ten-minute, commercial-free, daily news program designed for middle and high school classes. It is produced by the journalists at CNN. This award-winning show and its companion website are available free of charge throughout the school year.
