Current Events

I spend a little bit of time each day discussing current events with my students. If I don’t bring it up, they do. We try to clear up misinformation while staying informed about what’s going on in the world around us- plus connecting what’s going on in the world today to our curriculum. So I was intrigued by this post over at the Stenhouse blog.  Are you looking for some strategies for how to make current events an important part of your reading or writing workshop? Check the pot above to learn more about some new books from Kelly Gallagher and Sarah Cooper .  They’ve hosted a VoiceThread event about some of the work they’ve done.
