Free stuff for teachers
Hello everyone! The Smithsonian has a great new resource that is free for teachers and we are working to get the message out to educators. It's a great site to help build those 21st-Century skills with students and meets those CCSS. Specifically, we offer a daily article in Spanish that is great for bilingual students.
You can see everything it offers here: http://microsite.smithsonianmag.com/tweentribune/
Please also feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
To share a little more, the site is Smithsonian TeenTribune.
Stories from AP Newswire stories are translated into Spanish as well as a quiz and a critical thinking challenge to go with the article. In addition to Spanish-language articles, we do also have daily news articles in English at 4 different Lexile-levels. Students are able to post their thoughts and all comments are easily approved by their teachers.
By adding their students, teachers are able to assign articles to read, quizzes, track student comments and more all from their own personal dashboard.
