Reading news is a great way to practice English, as well as become more aware of important developments happening around the world.
Before each session, I will provide students with two articles (or sources), which we will discuss in class. This allows students to read the articles at their own pace, write down questions, and engage in more fruitful class discussion.
Firstly, we will focus on reviewing the articles, along with answering students' questions regarding vocabulary and reading comprehension.
Then every student will share their own thoughts regarding the news stories; I will initiate student group discussions and debates relating to the article topics by asking follow up questions and providing different viewpoints.
