'Inconceivable!' You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
~William Goldman, 1973
These lessons are updated daily throughout the school year and are designed for middle and high school students. Each lesson includes a news article and discussion questions designed to promote critical thinking, challenge assumptions, and stimulate class discussion. In an attempt to offer variety, the two daily articles often are of different lengths and reading levels and occasionally offer different perspectives on an issue or event.
Note: Each new lesson remains on the website for one week.
