Getting students to read or watch the news and stay informed can be difficult, but CNN provides a daily newscast designed specifically for teens — CNN10. It is a good resource for teachers wanting to share a short news video on a daily — or weekly — basis. Students can practice their reporting skills by taking notes, writing leads, and reporting on what they watched. It is an easy way for students to practice getting direct quotes. Some teachers have had students keep daily journals in which they write about something they learned or found intriguing, a specific detail or anecdote that stood out, or an effective visual, audio, or editing aspect that helped tell the story.
