Web-based Activity: Newspapers in Classrooms

Posted on 04/27/2017

In the April 2017 Web-based activity article, Debbie Jensen posits that there are lots of reasons why we should use a newspaper in adult education, but one great one is that we can teach our students critical reading skills including evaluation the source. But sometimes the newspapers are too difficult to read. That is why she lists some sources and lessons appropriate for our ESL, ABE and ASE programs.

Debbie goes on to describe useful sites such as: Breaking News English, CNN Student News, ReadWorks, Newsela, The New York Times in School, Los Angeles Times in Education, and News in Levels.

You can find step-by-step instructions and ideas for activities in this April Web-based Activity article.
