Right now COVID-19 is the news that is most prevalent and most talked about, but there’s still so much other news going on. Our students are bombarded with COVID-19 stories and are most likely not taking in too much else. The public broadcasting station in Kentucky, KET, has created a 15–minute current events program for students that help keep them in the know about current events in the world. News Quiz offers short news stories, a corresponding quiz and other resources. Parents can encourage their children to watch this for enrichment or teachers can make it a part of their weekly class lesson. The host is engaging and students will like it.
