Current Event Research Project

Whatever happened to the days when students researched and shared information about ‘what’s happening’ around town, the state, the country, or the nation? These mini projects were called Current Events…

A current event project allows students the opportunity to practice quite a few skills: researching-via newspaper/magazine or on-line, reading to analyze information, summarizing and presenting, while their classmates are critically listening and taking notes to ask viable questions.
