CNN Student News Is All About Japan

Today's episode of CNN Student News, which I had my students watch this morning, is all about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The ten minute episode provides a jargon-free explanation of the cause of the tsunami, the effects of the earthquake and tsunami, and the concerns regarding Japan's nuclear energy facilities. If you're in need of some viewing and discussion questions to use with the video, CNN Student News offers those here.
Watch the video below.
