As part of our English Language Arts class, we will be watching episodes from the CNN Student News.
CNN Student News is a ten-minute, commercial-free, daily news program designed for middle and high school classes. It is produced by the journalists and educators at CNN. This award-winning show and its companion website are available free of charge throughout the school year. [Transcripted from the CNN Student News Website]
CNN Student news will give us the opportunity to practice our listening comprehension skills, to take part in a debate, to create our own opinions and to develop our Writing Skills.
The episodes that we will watch in class will be previewed by the teacher to make sure the content is age-appropriate.
CNN News is a great teaching tool to support 21st century learning, to reinforce media literacy, and to keep the students engaged.
