I think the lesson plan is very interesting and beneficial to high school students. I like that students will be using Internet to research different articles, read, summarize them and then present the material to their classmates. I think it would have been beneficial if you introduced your students to RSS feeds- that way they know that they do not have to search the Internet for news all the time, they can subscribe to different channels and receive the news daily by visiting one site. I liked that a teacher was going to do presentation on a summarized news article as an example. I think you met UDL principles, instructional strategies and instructional design very well.

Great job! You’ve included lots of great information! I like that you’re addressing the idea of having students study international social issues. I also like that you give the students the chance to choose what articles to use for their project. That will help make them feel a part of the learning process. Through the class discussion of each students’ articles/presentations, each student will learn about the different topics from each other. To help improve this age group’s technology skills, maybe you could add a simple presentation software to enhance their oral presentation. This would allow the other learners in the class, who are not auditory learners, to still learn from their fellow classmates. I think you did a good job meeting instructional strategies throughout the less. I also think you did a good job meeting several UDL principles. Overall I think you did a great job and it sounds like a very beneficial lesson!
