NewsCurrents is an award-winning weekly current events
discussion program for grades 3 to 12.
Subscribers receive 34 issues during the school year. Every issue contains two components: A discussion guide (written on three levels), and images that go along with each story. Educators use these two components to lead weekly discussions with their students.
NewsCurrents covers national and international stories every week, as well as developments in science, the arts, sports, and more. It also includes regular features such as “This Week in History”and “Country of the Week”.
NewsCurrents is available in two convenient formats:
Online or DVD. With NewsCurrents Online, the guide and
images are available for weekly download from the website.
With NewsCurrents DVD, you receive a printed guide with a DVD
containing the images via first class mail each week.
The teacher’s guide gives you everything you need to conduct a teacher-directed discussion about important issues. Each story is written on three learning levels with discussion questions and background information built in.
Students focus on the visual images while they listen, answer questions, and express opinions. The visuals contain teaching elements like maps, news and historic photos, charts, and more.
