Getting Global with Discovery

Keeping students informed about current events

New Update: Daily Global News

Now when you visit you can view a daily global news video clip on your home page. These video clips are complete with a downloadable transcript and are kept between 2-4 minutes long.

It's important that students are aware of current happenings, and these events can serve as great points for discussion and even tie into curriculum standards.
