Description:

Every weekday, CMARGIN Notes provides K-12 teachers with a wrap-up of the previous day's most educationally significant news stories. Each issue of this free email newsletter contains summaries of about a dozen articles in ten content-specific categories. Using a Web browser with an integrated mail feature (like Netscape Navigator 2.0 or 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0), subscribers can jump directly to the full-text versions of articles that interest them. An online archive allows subscribers and nonsubscribers alike to view back issues. (Note: CMARGIN Notes is part of a comprehensive site for K-12 teachers called CMARGIN.)

Evaluation:

Teachers across all grade levels and disciplines should appreciate having quick and easy access to news stories that demonstrate the importance and relevance of classroom topics in everyday life. The archive should be a huge timesaver for students or teachers conducting online research, especially when the search function is up and running.

Although CMARGIN Notes doesn't come with step-by-step instructions for integrating news items into the curriculum, it has been designed to work with existing instructional materials; article summaries are accompanied by learning objectives that closely correspond to the learning objectives in textbooks. Not only is this a great source of ideas for timely, authentic classroom activities and lesson plans; it's also a painless way to keep up with what's going on in the world.
