The Weekly Newsquiz tests students' knowledge of events in the news
February 5, 2016
We begin this Friday by covering two U.S. presidential events concerning the issue of religious faith. Then, we explain the tenets of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and we travel to New Zealand for a sense of the developments and protests regarding the deal. As parts of the South recover from recent tornadoes, we explore how these twisters spin down from the sky. And as some students dream of DJ stardom, we drop some information about what it takes to get ahead in the industry.
On this page you will find today’s show Transcript and a place for you to request to be on the CNN Student News Roll Call.
