News in the Classroom 1

Posted on December 12, 2011 by Sarah

Hey people! I know it’s been crunch time for me at OISE, but the holidays are almost here!  I just wanted to share a website, Teaching Kids News, a Toronto based news site for kids! They have timely articles written in kid friendly language that break down important issues. Like any news site, TKN is divided into categories from science to art, environment to politics. The site is clear, legible and easily navigable. The team behind the project includes TDSB teachers looking for a meaningful way to develop a balanced literacy program. As such, they provide suggestions on each entry for how to use the articles, from Writing and Reading Prompts to Grammar Features. If we, as educators, are to help our students develop skills necessary in current and future realities then I think getting them involved in news early and regularly is a great way.  Check out one of their most recent articles Gap Between Rich-Poor Growing: OECD!
