Using the News to Enhance Critical Thinking and Engagement in Middle and High School Students
Walters, Jessica
Journal of Catholic Education, v20 n2 Article 9 Mar 2017
This article describes the author's adaptation of Gallagher's (2009) Article of the Week approach to teaching students literacy skills using current events. The use of this unique instructional routine within the context of a Catholic middle school language arts classroom has proven successful for supporting students in developing critical literacy and an understanding of moral leadership by examining world events from a Catholic worldview.
