Standards-based content using current events to develop critical thinking.
Meet your learning objectives.
Aligned with National Standards
All of our content is aligned with grade-level appropriate Common Core standards for Reading Informational Text. Stories highlight both tier 2 and tier 3 words to build general literacy and subject-specific knowledge. In addition to defining the words, vocabulary quiz questions are designed to push students to think about words in context.

Story Selection and Leveling
Our team of educators and journalists meet every afternoon to select stories that are important, educational, and engaging.
The Juice’s content is available in 4 reading levels because we believe there are current events stories we should all know. That way we can have a conversation across age levels.
Develop critical thinking.
Critical thinking is at once a powerful filter for determining what is worthy of our attention, how to make sense of the information presented, what questions to ask in pursuit of where to look next, and how to rationally formulate a conclusion.
With The Juice, Students:
1. Question and Reason
2. Investigate and Conclude
3. Discuss and Reflect
Filter the noise, eliminate the bias, get the facts.
Non-Partisan and Balanced
We are committed to keeping your students informed by helping them cut through the noise of misinformation and bias in the news and on social media. We deliver fresh, non-partisan, and reliable news every day.
We do not use software to determine the news or to create content. We believe that robots, filters, and algorithms make us less informed and reduce the diversity of the information we consume. When we only see news and opinions that support our beliefs, confirmation bias arises, making us less tolerant, less thoughtful, and more divided.
Being unbiased, is fundamental to everything we do. Our publisher, News and News, has been rated least-biased by the leading media bias watchdog. That’s our philosophy and we’re sticking to it.
You can’t trust the news if you don’t trust the source.
Our proprietary “Bias Meter” quantifies the political leanings of all the postings on our news aggregation site, illustrating whether the site as a whole is trending to the left or right.
We use the bias meter to keep ourselves honest and minimize bias so you get the facts, not the spin.
