News-2-You has been connecting students to the world through current events for over 15 years. With News-2-You, students learn about current events through symbol-supported articles, activities, games and worksheets. All of these instructional materials reinforce the topic of each weekly newspaper.
New this year, all editions of the newspaper are interactive. This cutting-edge technology allows students to interact with the content. More than 50 worksheets are now interactive, giving students a new way to explore the newspaper. Students can answer “wh” questions, solve the Sudoku board, complete the puzzle and play the game page all on their computers. Text to speech is also incorporated in all materials.
n2y uses instructional targets to bridge between standards and the curriculum content for students with special needs. Instructional Targets are aligned to State Educational and Transition standards.
News-2-You delivers fresh news content weekly to educators and students. Included in every edition is a game, puzzle, recipe, joke, Sudoku, think and review page to keep students engaged all week. An annual subscription includes access to 41 newspapers.
The newspaper is published in four different reading levels each week. There is always something to challenge every student from the non-reader to the competent reader. All reading levels offer high quality text-to-speech. A yearly subscription provides you access to all four levels.
Every day we add exciting news stories in three categories: "World News," "Sports News" and "Entertainment." These current interest articles will keep students engaged and connected to the world around them. Articles are 1-2 pages in length and are presented in a regular symbol-supported edition and a plain text advanced edition.World News Sample
