Current Events: Social Media Use Leads to Social Isolation

Hey all! Here’s my current events lesson plan for this week! It’s based off of this article from NPR, and I thought it was an incredibly interesting and thought-provoking topic. I know that my students are constantly on social media (even when we’re in class…grrr), so this is a worthwhile topic for students to contemplate. This lesson is best suited for intermediate or advanced students – it’s not a long article, but some of the vocabulary is difficult (even after editing it for readability).

Current Events: The Burning Problem of China’s Garbage

Hey all! It’s been kind of a slow news week (well, not really, but I haven’t been able to find a news event that ESL students might be able to understand and relate to without a ton of background knowledge on US politics), so here’s another one-off story from NPR. I’ve adapted the original article for vocabulary and readability. The story is interesting, and I’ve found that many students enjoy talking about the environment.
