This product contains 23 no-prep current events printables and graphic organizers that can be used with any article or internet news post. Use them when you are reading an article as a class or for independent selections to keep your students accountable. They will also work well with Time for Kids and Weekly Reader articles.
For the graphic organizers, both lined and unlined versions are included (as indicated in the table of contents on the next page). Most of the pages are meant to be used with a single article; however, there are 3 pages that can be used when comparing and contrasting two articles on the same topic. There is also a page students can use when preparing to share a current events article with the class.
