News-2-You® has a specific alignment to the Reading Standards for Informational Text and the Speaking & Listening Standards.
The modified newspaper is an excellent supporting tool to the skills taught in Unique Learning System®. Through reading the weekly news topic, students gain new information, thus having "something to talk about". Standard Alignment is shown through Instructional Targets in News-2-You lesson plans.
Additionally, News-2-You provides worksheets that support content skills in the areas of science, math, writing, and vocabulary. These supporting activities are a valuable resource for practicing the skills taught in Unique Learning System. Several resources are provided to assist in standards-based planning and instruction, such as Lesson Plans and Alignment Documents. These resources can be found in News-2-You > Current Issues > Additional Materials.
