Series Description
"News Quiz, in the middle of [its] third season, has an updated set and an expanded audience. This year News Quiz is being distributed nationally to markets in San Francisco, Kansas City, and Buffalo. We're receiving an average of 250 letters per month from students all over the country. "News Quiz is a weekly fifteen minute current events program designed for upper elementary/middle school students. The critical need for current events materials that will interest this audience is indicated by the consistently high level of usage in Kentucky over the past two years. Our series differs from the other video materials available in [its] fast-paced, motivating quiz format. An on-camera host presents the stories using maps and tape roll-ins. Each news story is followed by multiple-choice questions covering key points in the story. Students have the opportunity to check their answers later in the program. In addition to stimulating interest in current events, News Quiz scripts are written to develop vocabulary, research, and map skills. A teacher's guide, full of useful ideas for individual and group activities, is available. "News Quiz received an Honorable Mention from the corporation for public broadcasting in [its] Instructional Television Awards Program in 1987."--1987 Peabody Awards entry form.
