Current Events Handout

Having students analyze the news is a great way to keep them informed as well as build real world reading skills. After a thorough reading of the article students will be asked to write out the following: - WHO is the article about? - WHEN did this event/issue happen? - WHAT are four important facts you found? - WHERE is this event/issue happening? - WHY is this event/issue important? - To review students are asked to construct a relevant based on the article.
