Contemporary Issues Students Take on "Speed News" Activity
Contemporary Issues Students Take on "Speed News" Activity

Thursday, September 26, 2019

In Contemporary Issues teacher Teresa Merz's class last week, her students were exposed to several news stories in rapid succession through a "speed news" technique, where the students had less than 30 seconds with each peer to share a news story and write down the facts before moving on. The exercise showed students that even with a few minutes a day, it's possible to quickly stay up-to-date with what is going on around us, even with our busy schedules.
