Connecting Students to the World
News-2-You® has been connecting students to the world through current events for over 17 years. Working closely with the Associated Press (AP), News-2-You topics are timely, contemporary and applicable in classrooms nationwide. With News-2-You, students engage in rich literacy and language instruction while learning about diverse current event topics. Lessons and experiences are extended through interactive symbol-supported articles, activities, games, guided practice opportunities and flexible means of expressing what they have learned.
Delivered weekly in five different versions, News-2-You readers access the newspaper together through the highest version available and then through a version specific to individual instructional needs. Each version of the weekly newspaper contains the same concepts related to the central topic, but modifies the presentation or format for differentiated learning.
Included Weekly in Your Subscription
News-2-You subscribers can access the newspaper online with interactive speaking pages, or offline, using printable pages for instruction and comprehension. More than 50 accompanying activities are delivered in the weekly theme for multiple guided practice experiences. Activities are engaging, symbol-supported and focused on the central topic for the weekly edition of News-2-You.
Working with the Associated Press (AP), News-2-You releases Breaking News stories in three categories: World, Sports and Entertainment. Each titled Breaking News story is one to two pages, includes symbol-supported text, is read with highlighting, and includes a video link at the bottom of the page. For a text-only version, use the settings on each page to hide symbols. An Advanced version directly follows the symbol-supported text. Look for new Breaking News stories as they happen using the news ticker on the homepage at n2y.com.
n2y uses Instructional Targets to link standards to curriculum content for students with special needs. Instructional Targets are aligned to State Educational and Transition standards.
