A tutee’s (one who is being tutored) mom sent me this website that I think will be beneficial to teaching history. Student Daily News is a website that posts current event articles from around the world.

StudentNewsDaily.com is a non-profit current events website for high school students.Our goal is to build students’ knowledge of current events and strengthen their critical thinking skills.This is done by providing comprehension and critical thinking questions along with published news articles and other current events items from various news organizations.We provide resources that will enable students to become informed viewers and readers of the news.

There are several categories that constitute the site and you can either check the website at your convenience or sign up and have the articles delivered to your email box.

There is a Daily News article

Daily Best of the Web

World Events

Media Bias

Editorials

News Quizzes

Political Cartoons

I love the features at the end of the articles.  There is  a quiz about the article and background for your student to have some knowledge in order to read the article and explain anything that might be needed to understand what is being read.

Here is the link to check it out. CLICK HERE
