The Economist for kids

The Economist may be a respected international newsmagazine, but it’s also great for students. Every issue has useful sections on each continent or geographic region of the world. In the table of contents you can see which particular countries are covered in that issue. There are short summaries of recent newsworthy events, longer articles, and plenty of maps, graphs, statistics, and pictures. While the focus is on economics, they cover the full range of news events in every corner of the globe. It’s perfect for country reports, current events assignments, or just to impress your social studies teacher! (Read More) Current issues of The Economist are available at the Malletts Creek, West, and Downtown libraries in the magazine and newspaper area. You can also look at Economist articles online through the Library’s research databases. The databases Expanded Academic ASAP and General Reference Center Gold have Economist articles going back several years. Best of all, you can access them from any computer with Internet access! All you have to do is log in with your library username and password.
