I recently completed a project in which a partner and myself had to create a PowerPoint presentation demonstrating how we would incorporate current events into our future social studies classroom. We chose to use the "What's it to you?" activity from News Owl Kids. In our graduate class, we were also given access to a website called NewsELA. If you have not heard of NewsELA I highly suggest you check it out! The videos below explains more about NewsELA and how it can be used.
Stay tuned to see our presentation and my reflection about my experiences with NewsELA and thoughts about using current events in the classroom!
