Rely upon teacher-vetted current events! Included are stories that present multiple views, additional resources to learn more, definitions of relevant vocabulary, insightful prompts to consider, links to lesson plans, and connections to the Constitution and other government and civics principles.

Current Events GOALS

  • Promote interest and dialogue about current issues
  • Connect current issues and citizenship in a democracy
  • Provide vetted resources to teachers and students
  • Encourage civil discussion about the news by asking open-ended questions that reflect democratic values (such as justice, equality, responsibility, participation)
  • Stimulate a continuing awareness of events locally, nationally and globally
