Working from Bell to Bell: A 15 Minute Warm-up Exercise with USA TODAY Linda Moyer, Literacy Integration Instructor from Bethlehem, PA writes:
"Having difficulty getting your students to read? I was too, until I introduced them to USA Today. Offering each student this resource at the beginning of class kept my students engaged until class began and opened up invaluable discussions for learning. One morning when I did not have access to USA Today, I realized how engaging and meaningful this resource was to the students.
That morning, several students asked, 'Where's the USA Today, Mrs. Moyer? That is important to us. We want to know what is happening in the world.' YouTube sample To
