Three Good Places to Find Current Events Stories for Students

Last week I wrote about using the BBC’s Week in Pictures as a source of current events discussion starters. Following up on that idea, here are some other good places to find current events stories written for kids. 

For many years CNN Student News was one of my go-to resources when I was teaching current events courses. Today, CNN Student News is called CNN 10. CNN 10 provides good, short overviews of the previous day’s important new stories. A written transcript accompanies every episode. 

DOGOnews is a student news site that features articles for K-8 students. DOGOnews covers current events stories in the areas of science, sports, entertainment, and variety of topics that fall under the banner of social studies. Teachers can find stories by browsing the categories, filtering by grade level, or filtering by grade level.

PBS NewsHour Extra is a good site for middle school and high school students. The site offers a searchable database of articles. A searchable database of lesson plans is also available on PBS NewsHour Extra.
