We hope you've had a great start to a new year, great new students and excitement over the U.S. Election. Even if they aren't yet able to vote, or become citizens, it's important that students know what's going on for Americans. We always take pleasure in knowing that our readers, after a year or two, know more than many students on college campuses (as interviewed by Jesse Watters on TV's Watters World). Many have written to thank us for helping them prepare for the citizenship exam.
If you haven't renewed yet, there's still time to get the September issue. Don't miss it. September's issue is full of useful, important, timeless information your students need to begin to understand America's election: What does the U.S. president actually do? What powers does he have? What limits does he have? September's issue also includes Ask Elizabeth: Tips for Success at School, which outlines valuable ways for your students to set themselves up for a successful school year. Finally, don't miss the two-page spread photo article about the important happenings and places in Washington, D.C., our nation’s capital: The Capitol, White House, Supreme Court, memorials, museums, monuments...make sure your students see this!
The October issue has gone to press and continues with issues in the election, problems for the next president, and the candidates for president, both major and third parties.
Here you will find the Teacher's Guide and Quizzes for October, plus 20 pages of Cloze Exercises, Short Answer Tests, and Critical-thinking and Creative-thinking questions for the October issue.
