World News Headlines Research
Teenagers are more connected that ever and yet they seldom have any understanding of major world events. This handout is targeted toward broadening student's global horizons in a format that is not overwhelming for them. Instead of picking single articles for students to read I have them research world headlines (link to BBC News site included in handout directions), thus reducing the stress or frustration they may feel when assigned full articles.

Is also a good sub plan.

The purpose of this activity is to help students develop background knowledge of world events and increase global citizenship.

I generally take my students to the computer lab to do this for a 50 minute period. That way I can walk around and discuss the topics they are looking at together. The conversations have been very interesting and I can tell they learn a lot.
