The Learning Resources site offers web-delivered instruction using CNN and CBS 5 - KPIX (CBS Broadcasting) news stories. Western/Pacific LINCS (part of the National Institute for Literacy's LINCS Project) and Literacyworks, uses these stories to develop an online literacy site that benefits all learners and instructors.
When my fifth graders have unpacked and begun eating their breakfast in the morning, I typically play a CNN News video for them to watch while they eat. I leave a "5 W's" graphic organizer on the front table for them to pick up as well. The students fill this sheet out as they watch and eat.
