CNN Student News

CNN Student News is a 10-minute, commercial-free news broadcast designed for middle- and high-school students. The news video may be downloaded as a podcast and is also available as a streamed video. The site features a transcript of each show, a Media Literacy Question of the Day to be used for discussion, and a weekly newsquiz that covers materials from each week’s student news broadcast. Teachers may sign up for a Daily Education Alert email which provides the topics being covered in each show and contains links to downloadable maps related to the locations in the headlines. CNN Student News also maintains a blog, From A to Z with Carl Azuz, which offers students opportunities to comment on stories in the news.
