Informed Future!

My students need 65 copies of Time for Kids so that they may each have a copy and 15 copies of WR News so that the students may work together and discuss.

My Students

Knowing how to find, understand, and decide for yourself when looking at current events is an integral tool that every student should learn.

I work with 32 fifth grade students, 2 of whom receive additional services to meet their needs.

They are smart, fun, and ready to learn, but need the tools to be able to become current event and real world experts. Fifth grade is the year when we learn about U.S. History, and it needs to be the year that we learn about current events and new history as well.

My Project

Knowing how to find and understand current events is a skill. It is easy to read one thing and believe it, but it is challenging to read one thing and investigate it further. TIME for Kids is a magazine that offers students current information in graphs, non-fiction text, and more. From there students can start researching the information for greater depth. In addition, World Report News offers students a chance to work in groups and discuss/debate what is going on in the world around them. It is a great place to start a writing assignment for a group or individual.

This project will impact my students and classroom today by creating debate topics that students will be aware of and have researched.

This will impact the future of the community, state, and country by creating educated individuals who know how to seek and find what is going on around them.
