Get students involved in watching and reporting on various news stories. Divide your students into groups of four. Rotate groups weekly so that each group will be responsible for the NEWS every 7 weeks. Each student in the groups is responsible to report on 2 items from the local, provincial (state), national or international news on Friday morning. There must be some written items on each of the news items. Students must also be prepared to answer questions from the class.
