Current Events is free to all izzit members but you must be logged into your account for the site to recognize you.
  1. Don’t enter anything in the log-in email address or password button in the upper right corner of the site.
  2. Hit the green GO button. (You’re entering nothing in the password box.)
  3. On this new page, enter your email address. Now, under the enter button, you’ll find text asking you if you’ve forgotten your password. Click the word HERE in that sentence.

  1. Check your spam folder.
  2. Sometimes a password reset will not reach your inbox due to our emails being blocked by your district.
  3. Check with your school IT personnel to see if the district is blocking emails from izzit.org. We need to be on the “Safe Senders” list.
  4. If our emails are being blocked by your school, try using your secondary email address (if you have one on file with us that is NOT associated with your school’s domain) to reset your password.
  5. Contact Customer Service toll-free at 888-242-0563 any weekday from 8 am – 6 pm EST and we will be happy to reset it for you. If you email us, the returned reply may also be blocked.
We recommend usage for grades 4-12, with teacher modifications for their students’ ability levels. We cannot tailor articles more specifically for each grade because of the resources required to do so. We offer two articles each day to provide teachers with options regarding topics, length of articles, and varying lengths and reading levels.
We do not provide answers to the discussion questions. Factual questions are answered within the articles themselves. Other questions are open-ended questions designed to promote healthy discussion and debate within your classroom. As such, there are no “right” or “wrong” answers.
  1. Be sure your account is set to receive the emails. Log in to izzit.org. At the bottom of the MY ACCOUNT page, click on EDIT ACCOUNT. At the bottom of the page you will find the buttons to sign up for the email reminders. Be sure YES is selected.
  2. Check your junk/spam folder to make sure the emails haven’t gone in there.
  3. Check with your school IT personnel to see if the district is blocking emails from izzit.org. We need to be on the “Safe Senders” list.
  4. Remember, even if you don’t get the emails, you can still access the Current Events articles just by logging in to your account at izzit.org and clicking on the Current Events link.
  5. If you need more help, contact Customer Service toll-free at 888-242-0563 any weekday from 8 am – 6 pm EST or email currentevents@izzit.org.
