Need a new, current resource for teaching ELA or Current Events?  The Smithsonian Institution’s TweenTribune is a free online resource for students at any level in the K-12 grade range that is more than just a news source — it’s an extension of your classroom.

Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 5.42.39 PMWhen a teacher signs up for an account at TweenTribune, he/she also is given student accounts so that students can actively participate in the reading of and discussing articles, as well as submitting their own ideas and photos for publication.  In addition, students can be tested through built-in assessments, and the site can be navigated via grade and lexile levels.

But don’t take our word for it…check out the review by Erin Klein of Kleinspiration, Lisa Sanderson of Tech Tuesday, and more.
