NewsCurrents is ready-made for distance learning*


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, and more.

Unlike other current events programs, NewsCurrents’s stories provide the crucial background information students need for comprehension, engagement, and literacy.

Teacher using NewsCurrents:


The teacher’s guide gives you everything you need to conduct a teacher-directed discussion about important issues.

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.
