NewsCurrents emphasizes active, interactive, dynamic discussion in schools, while still keeping educators in charge. It is not a classroom magazine or a passive video program. Only NewsCurrents uses an interactive, multisensory discussion format that concentrates your students’ attention and encourages them to think and talk about important issues.

Unlike other programs, and most mass media outlets, NewsCurrents provides the crucial background knowledge that students need for comprehension and interest. It is written on three vocabulary and cognitive levels so it can be used in grades 3 to 12, as well as special ed, ELL, gifted, and adult education.

The unique NewsCurrents Method ACTIVELY engages students through visuals and listening and speaking skills, it is ideal for ESL strategies such as scaffolding & sheltered English instruction.

NewsCurrents is flexible and easy to use. It is a ready made lesson plan every week with topics that connect to many national and state standards for history, oral communication, geography, discussion, civics, comprehension, and critical thinking.
