Short, easy news articles.
« on: July 30, 2012, 02:38:19 PM »
I was shown this website by a new friend... It has very short, 1-2 paragraph news articles that include some activities at the end relating to them. I thought it might be good for high level high school teachers or private lessons. I wish I could use it for Middle school but it is pretty advanced. Just thought it was cool!

It's also a good way those of us who don't like reading a lot to keep up on the times...haha.

Thanks for posting this. I've been using these for my Third-Year class. You definitely need high-level students to make this work, but I like the articles.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
