StarTeaching Article of the Week

Taken from real sources like Time Magazine, US News and World Report, and leading newspapers from around the country, the Article of the Week provides students with real, engaging articles that are relevant to their lives and give them the background knowledge to understand issues in our world today.  

Each selection is taken a step further by coupling the expository reading practice with the SQ3R reading strategy.  There is also a FREEWRITE (see our website) so that students can respond to a writing prompt related to the content of the article.  It won't take long before you are adjusting these and finding your own AoWs for your own students.
