February 2016 Easy English NEWS Monthly Teacher's Guide and Quiz

Jan 22, 2016 - 0 comments

Welcome to the hot month of February. If it isn’t hot outside, at least it’s hot in the primary states this month. On page 6, I’ve included a time chart of events that will happen in the year before a new president takes office. There’ll be articles in future issues of EEN on conservative vs. liberal ideas; political parties; issues; conventions; the party nominees; third parties; election day; and the electoral college process.

Many new workers in the country do not realize that they might be entitled to a tax refund. If your students have jobs, mention that in February, they may get a W-2 form to show how much they earned in 2015, and how much tax was taken out. Next month, we’ll have one of the simpler tax forms for students to practice with.

Happy New Year! January is often a time that new students arrive. One of the advantages of Easy English NEWS is that it is new each month and new students don't have a sense of "starting in the middle." They can jump right in and feel part of the classroom environment right away.

December 2015 Easy English NEWS Monthly Teacher's Guide and Quiz

Happy holidays to you and all of your students. If you haven't downloaded the free Holiday Song Book, it is available at my website. Eighteen traditional holiday songs, with the word help for each song at the bottom of the page. As usual, there'll be many pages of cloze exercises and short answer questions. People have asked for some deeper thought questions, so I'll create some of those...however, with a range of abilities and ages, this type of question is probably best left in your capable hands.

With all the troubles going on in the world, it’s a good thing November makes us remember to be thankful for the blessings we usually take for granted and that our students come to this country for. We at Easy English NEWS are thankful for ESL teachers who work hard to bring communication skills to hundreds of thousands of newcomers. Thank you for the work you do.

I jettisoned the original front page article written for October (Ask the Candidates) in favor of the catastrophic movement of people in Europe that will have ongoing repercussions on our world. Election news will reappear in future issues.
