CNN Student News - Review of Global Headlines

One of the reasons that I enjoy being a social studies teacher is that most of the time when I turn on the news (most of my news comes via Internet these days) I find a story that I can connect to my curriculum. CNN Student News is perfect for folks like me who believe that curriculum should be relevant to our students' lives and to our society. Each day CNN Student News serves up succinct summaries of important happenings in US and World news. Today's episode is no exception to that pattern as they review three stories spanning the globe from Washington, DC to India. In addition to the video, you may also want to utilize the maps that accompany the transcript of the video.
