Summary

Reading news is a great way to practice English, as well as become more aware of important developments happening around the world.

Format

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.

What you can learn from this class

1. Gain self confidence in speaking English 2. Practice expressing a variety of views and opinions in English 3. Learn more about current affairs in general

My experience for the class

I’m a New Yorker who has been living and teaching in Asia for seven years. I have my degree in English Literature, Asian Studies, and the Classics, and I’m currently finishing my MA in Literary Linguistics through the University of Nottingham. Aside from my love of the classroom, I am writer, editor, and poet. I hope my enthusiasm for sharing words with all of you will serve as a platform for us all to learn from one another in a relaxed but productive environment. :) You may find out more about me @ www.sandeewoodside.com

Sandee挑選的多是生活相關卻是我們不常注意的主題,例如在社交或工作上突然消失的行為(ghost),智慧型手機與記憶力,美食部落格等等,很活潑有趣的內容!

Sandee is a good teacher who encouraged students to share their ideas! Also, her vivid direction and discussion also force to class to think more about the topic.:)
