In this lesson, the students will use authentic websites and digital resources to report on the current events happening in the target culture. The students will read the article in the target language, make a summary of the article, and determine what products, practices, or perspectives of the target culture can be identified in the article. Then, students will make a comparison between the reporting of the current event in the target culture and the same or similar event in the native culture. Students may present their current event in the target language and compare similar events in other target language countries through class or small group discussions.
This activity was created as a result of the World Languages Course of Study Resource Development Summit.
