6 Article Sites for Students

Empowering youth literacy, reading fluency and global awareness through current events, books, and movies.

I just read this article written by Eric Curts. I suggest you click on the link below to check out his web-page.  Below I have copied the links I think look interesting for our students in both middle school and high school for learning English and keeping up with the latest news.

Current event and general interest articles are a wonderful resource for students. They can be used for researching a topic, staying informed on what’s happening in the news, pleasure reading, and more. Source: Control Alt Achieve: 15 Awesome Article Sites for Students
