Teachers as Technology Trailblazers

Standard

Kristen Swanson: I was very impressed by the options offered by TweenTribune, TeenTribune, and TTEspañol and I think it would be a fabulous community for students in middle school classes. Give it a try!

 

Students at the middle school level need opportunities to express their opinions and ideas about current issues and topics. Tween Tribune is a free resource that teachers can use to help introduce dialogue about current events in their class. Tween Tribune provides age appropriate versions of current news articles and all comments are moderated before they are posted. It is safe. You can choose to create a customizable page with student log ins.
