Channel One News

This is a worksheet I use with Channel One News. Before watching the news, students try to predict what the news will be about on that day in a classroom discussion. During the video, students fill in the worksheet; they take notes and write a creative headline for each piece of news. After watching the news, they write a paragraph about one of the pieces, using information from the video to support their ideas. Finally, they have a group discussion, followed by a classroom discussion of the news. I like this worksheet, because it can still be used by an individual student who has missed school that day. I use it with my ELL students and low English level students, but it can be adapted to different levels of English, in middle or high school.
