(NBC Learn K-12 is a video streaming web site created by NBC from their vast archive of new articles.  The site is designed not only to search for topics, but also to easily find articles using state standards.

(PBS LearningMedia's innovative digital content is designed for educators to engage students and inspire learning.  This site contains videos, interative content, lesson plans, etc.  The content is free, but you must sign up for an account with them.)

I attended a conference 6 years ago that qualified us for free usage of this Cicero program.  The registration is quick and easy.  Once I was logged in, I went to the Standards tab, chose a grade level, subject, and picked Common Core (you can also choose Indiana, but they are not updated to our new ones).  Once there you can choose a specific standard and find several articles WITH questions for your students.  This would be great to go along with our Chunking and Close Reading strategies that we learned about at the beginning of the year.  Keep up the great work, and let me know if you have any questions. - Mr. Wolford
