8th graders at @The_School are required to watch CNN Student News for Homework:

I was making “the rounds” this morning, and popped in on Monica Amaro‘s 8th Grade Social Studies class just as they started watching CNN Student News together. Kids were required to summarize in their journals 3 key points from the 10-minute segment. Monica screens it every morning before school so that she can discuss the topics with her students whether or not they watch it together in class (which they do about once a week). She says she got the idea to incorporate CNN Student News from Catherine Georges who teaches 7th Grade Social Studies here at The School at Columbia University.
