I really think it great when a teacher gets the students interested in the world and what’s happening there.
You can use the newspaper in many ways but one easy way is to ask a student each day to begin class by reporting 3 things from the news. A new student each day. Ask questions afterwards and have the student write the 3 main “headlines” or stories on the board.
A great way to get students using English in a very meaningful way.
True Stories is also a good series with real news stories.
This presentation shows why current events are great for teaching English. Also, don’t forget the Current Events page on EFL Classroom 2.0. Lonely teachers around the world, also get www.livestation.com Free streaming of all the major news TV stations. Works great!Report it! Newspaper reading...,
