TweenTribune is an online newspaper that is written exclusively for "tweens," 8-14 years old. TweenTribune does a great job at hooking students on reading while introducing them to daily news. The information on the site is updated daily with stories from reliable sources such as Associated Press and CNN. The site is similar to a blog as it allows comments to be posted (which can be moderated). Teachers can register their classes. Once a class is registered, it is very easy for a student to sign-up. No email is required of students. Some of you may remember publications such as Scholastic News or even, What's Happening. Online services such as TweenTribune have changed the way learning takes place. With the online format, the discussion goes beyond the classroom walls! With the advent of the common core standards, focus will be on non-fiction reading. TweenTribune may just be the right choice and best of all, its entirely free.
