Assignment: The World
Getting students to think and speak knowledgeably about the world around them can be difficult. They may not readily identify themselves as being part of a much larger universe. Students are not only members of a class, they are citizens of their towns, of their country, their state, the United States, and the world. For over twenty years, Assignment: The World (ATW) has prompted fourth through sixth grade students to think beyond the boundaries of their own classrooms.
This weekly news program covers world and national events and explains why those events are important. ATW encourages a greater understanding of current events, serves as the basis for class discussions on news happenings, and sparks curiosity in the individual student to learn more about what’s going on in the world.« Go Back
