CNN Student News Site - Free Resources (Middle/High School)

CNN Student News

Age Range: 11-18 (Middle School and High School)

CNN provides free, daily, 10-minute current events newscasts along with materials such as downloadable maps and discussion questions to help students develop critical thinking skills and better understand the stories covered in the news.

When you get to the site you'll see the day's featured news video - just click to play. You'll also see an icon menu that includes:
 *What is CNN Student News? - Get a full description of this service along with suggestions on how to optimize its use.
 *Shows & Transcripts - Access the archive of previous shows including the written transcripts of the shows.
 *Daily Discussion & News Quiz - Find questions to spark discussion about the daily news stories or test your knowledge of the news.

Sign up to receive the free "Daily Education Alert" by email with information on the major stories covered that day. 

You'll also find downloadable maps (pdf) and links to other educational resources offered by CNN.

IMPORTANT: On the Student News page there are ads for other CNN shows and a menu with links to news stories on politics, entertainment, health, money, sports, travel, etc., that are NOT part of the "CNN Student News." 
Therefore, as always, parents should preview and supervise Internet access!
