The Week in Rap as a nice little resource for current events lessons. Unfortunately, I've just learned that Flocabulary is now going to start charging $5/month to access the videos. They also are now promising to include some activities and quizzes to go along with the video.
I don't think I'll spend the money for a subscription because CNN Student News provides the same thing (minus the rap music) for free on a daily basis. But if you're interested, Flocabulary is offering a free trial subscription so you can evaluate it before buying it.
