Newscurrents is a weekly discussion program that uses current events to teach subjects across the curriculum. Newscurrents uses an interactive, multisensory discussion format that concentrates your students' attention and encourages them to think and talk about important issues.
Each issue contains national and international news stories, plus regular features such as Who Am I? Country of the Week, and This Week in History.
The NewsCurrent Subscription is every week for 34 weeks (September-May). Each issue consists of 17 teaching images and a corresponding online teacher's discussion guide. The guide is written on 3 levels for grades 3 and up.
The teacher's discussion guide contains the narrative with background information and discussion questions that correspond with the projected images. The guide also contains review quizzes on three learning levels and reproducible student activities.
