A Better Class of Journal-ists

Young academics create a current events journal by skimming newspapers for articles that fit defined guidelines for informational texts. After cutting out two articles each week to add to their journals, they write a brief description of the main idea for each story. They also write a brief statement reflecting on the importance of the article. This is a great activity that gets young readers exploring informational texts and can be easily modified for any grade level!

Lesson Planet has given me more time to teach and plan thoughtful lessons rather than spending that time scouring the Internet for resources and just throwing study guides at students!
