CLASSROOM 5MO — There are mystery states, newsela.com articles and students’ perspectives on news articles on different topics. This is current events class. It is part of the rotating system of classes.

Students have different perspectives about the class. Some think it’s a great way to learn, while others say it gets a little too political.

Lucy Dolan (5MO) said,”Current events is a great way to learn about what’s going around in the world. I especially think it’s a great way for kids to learn about the world and not just adults.  I like to read fun and interesting articles off newsela.com and writing reports about them. I like to present and watch presenters.”

Mrs. Angela Monteleone, the fifth grade teacher who runs the current events program, said, “I like teaching my students about political and governmental topics. I like to read political news articles with them, and this is the perfect year because there is so much happening politically. I also like to hear their opinions on political topics.”

Elio Pietranico (5M) said his favorite part of current events is “sharing our opinions. We don’t have to follow any opinions, and I feel like my opinion is respected by other people.”
