Persuade, Analyze, and Debate in a Global World
Our Current Events program allows busy students to read short yet enriching newspaper and magazine articles. Students in this program will:
- Build vocabulary
- Answer discussion questions
- Write essays
- Receive strong, personalized feedback
How it works
We use the same time-tested process as our Reading & Writing program, but with free online articles instead of books.
Students learn about current issues by reading a range of online articles, from international news to the latest sports headlines and scientific developments.
Students expand their vocabulary, respond to discussion questions, and analyze the article by writing an essay.
Students revise their essay based on teacher feedback, correcting grammar, fixing organization, and improving paragraphs with strong examples.
