PBS NewsHour Extra helps teachers and students identify the who, what, where and why-it-matters of the major national and international news stories. The site combines the best of NewsHour's reliable, trustworthy news program with lesson plans developed specifically for students. Standards-aligned resources cover subject areas, including government and civics, STEM, social studies, English, the arts, economics and media literacy. Engaging and thoughtful discussion questions ask students to explore all sides of an issue, and extension activities ensure students go beyond just the headlines.
