What a great idea!  The Society for Neuroscience will go through news reports each week and list any dealing with neuroscience in one place!  This is a great resource for teachers trying to connect science to current events and even policy decisions in their classroom.  Most articles are short and easy to read and can be adapted to almost any grade level.

The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because teachers still have to do some work in tailoring articles to what their classes are studying, but SfN does the bulk of the work by finding and listing them for you.
