Service providers should reserve time for News-2-You in their classroom schedule daily based on the Suggested Weekly Plan. When beginning News-2-You it is important to note the publication schedule as well as the Planning section in order to create and maintain a successful timeline.
News-2-You Publication Schedule
News-2-You is published weekly from September through May during the school year (except for a two-week break in December) and monthly in June, July, and August. The newspaper issues and related activities become available the Thursday before the publication date and stay online for two weeks at a time for service providers.
In Student View the Current Issue can be made available on the Monday publication date and remain accessible for one week (except for June, July, and August where they are available for a month) along with the accompanying Communication Board and Joey's Locker activities. When beginning News-2-You be careful to note when the Current Issues will be removed from the site.
Please note that if you are using the iPad App to supplement instruction in the classroom, the Current Issues are not released on the app until the following Monday.
In addition to the weekly newspaper editions, Breaking News articles are added throughout the week and can serve as supplemental coverage in the classroom. Please note that Breaking News does not have a set schedule. All Breaking News published in the last 3-7 days can also be made available in Student View.
Planning Section of News-2-You
The Planning section of the News-2-You menu provides a list of upcoming topics for future newspapers as well as a shopping (ingredient) list for future recipes. Note the dates that each issue will be available and be sure to plan accordingly to have all of the activities completed before two weeks.
