Current Events in the Elementary Classroom

Rebecca Alber Edutopia Consulting Online Editor

If you haven’t had a chance to read blogger and instructional coach Elena Aguilar’s latest post here, check it out. With the current happenings in Egypt and the Middle East, Elena emphasizes in her post the importance of -- and strategies for -- discussing current events with younger children.

How about with your students and the age you teach?

What is, and what is not, age-appropriate when it comes to current events discussions in K-6? What sensitive headline topics of war, politics, crime, etc.  have you tackled in your classroom?

We’d love to hear your thoughts and about activities and approaches you have found affective and successful for discussing current events with younger children!
