If you’re anything like me as a history teacher, you’re constantly looking for engaging, educational content for your students. There are a few hidden gems that stand out for their unique and insightful content and one of them is Worldatoz.org. Newscaster, Carl Azuz, takes armchair travelers, curious learners, and culture enthusiasts on an exhilarating journey around the globe, all while sitting comfortably at their desks.

Current Event Topics

Fun-loving Carl Azuz is back with a new show!  If you aren’t familiar with his episodes on Worldatoz.org it is best known as a celebration of the diverse cultures, landmarks, histories, and natural wonders that adorn our planet. Students can learn a variety of topics including survival stories all the way to the troubled times in Haiti.

His new free online 9-minute News Show is perfect to get students thinking about current events with a Common Core lens. We’ve even created an entire resource that centered around The World from A to Z. This activity set has Fourteen templates to choose from and is aligned with Common Core Literacy and Writing standards for ELA, history, and science (NGSS).

There are varying templates for teachers to implement depending on style and class ability level. In most cases, students are required to:

  • Support claims with evidence from the news
  • Draw conclusions
  • Illustrate data
  • Map where the stories take place
  • Summarize key information
  • Reflect on class connections to the current event

Since students can access the World from A to Z with Carl Azuz at home this makes for an easy extra credit or homework assignment. Class discussions come easily with a great base of information from which to launch.

In addition to receiving printable copies provided in PDF, this lesson was recently converted to GOOGLE 1:1 compatible templates for a completely GOOGLE Classroom-ready lesson! Textboxes are already made in a colorful Google Slides Interactive Notebook format. As always, the text is bold in dark blue for easy, eye-catching online grading!
