Current events are great to use in the classroom. Here's many reasons why!
One easy way is to use the BreakingNewsEnglish karaoke videos on our World Issues page. Each video comes with a cloze version (some words missing) and a full version. Also, links to the materials on BreakingNewsEnglish which are full of great activities. Sean Banville does a great job and is a teacher who shares and is a great role model for all other teachers.
Here's an example - $100 Laptop. Use with the videos below. Visit the One Laptop Per Child website for inspiration also!
