Report it! Newspaper reading…

I really think it is 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 afterward 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  on ELT Buzz.
