Current Events Round-Up: Friday the 13th

Want to read about Friday the 13th in your ESL class today? Here are some links to a few different news stories about Friday the 13th. Reading/talking about Friday the 13th is a really fun way to discuss superstitions across cultures with your students. Whenever I bring up this topic in my class, my students are very eager to share their favorite superstitions!

Random News Story Round-Up

These are a few news stories that I came across this week that I thought were very interesting, but I’m planning for next week’s current event theme to be the inauguration, so I couldn’t use these articles. Enjoy these stories, and I hope you can find a way to use them in your ESL reading classes!

Any way, happy Friday (the 13th!) and have a great weekend!
