IMPORTANT NEWSCURRENTS ANNOUNCEMENT
NewsCurrents will no longer contain the “Cartoon of the Week”
feature. We will also no longer be holding the “Student
Editorial Cartoon of the Year” contest in the spring.
We announce this with sadness; after all, we have run weekly
student editorial cartoons, and the annual Student Editorial
Cartoon Contest, for 27 years. But new educational challenges
and changing requirements have meant that fewer teachers are
able to contribute to this effort.
When this feature started in the fall of 1988, Ronald Reagan was
still the President of the United States, and Mikhail Gorbachev
was still trying to hold the Soviet Union together.
Though this chapter in our history is ending, we take great
pride in the thousands of student editorial cartoons
we have received over the years, and the fact that so many
of them were inspired by NewsCurrents stories. We will always
feel inspired by the wonderful educators who helped support
this effort over the years, and their amazing students.
Starting with the issue for the week of September 7th, 2015, a
new feature will break down how each story relates to Common Core
and other educational standards. We hope this feature, which
will be curated by an experienced classroom teacher, can
assist you in your educational goals..
