Article of the Week Sources

After my last post, a few people asked me where I get my articles for the weekly Article of the Week.  Honestly, I think I use a different source each week!  However, here are some of the sources I have used so far this year:

I’m always looking for more current events for middle schoolers.  It seems that most websites are geared toward high school and the reading level is too difficult for many of my sixth graders.  Please post any other websites in the comments!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this AND providing the links. I often see students rushing in at lunch time frantically searching CNN, or something like it, for a current event article, but never thought that there might be something more kid-friendly. D’uh!

  2. Thanks so much for the links! My school purchases Time For Kids and National Geographic Explorer, but I love all the other options!

  3. Hi, I don’t know if you accept awards, but I nominated you for one. Stop by my blog to check it out.

  4. Article of the Week is one of the many ideas I mean to try then forget to. Thank you for the inpiration and the resources to start.
