Thank you to the hundreds of teachers who have mailed the feedback surveys to us. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Easy English NEWS is your newspaper, and we are always looking for ways to improve and better serve your classroom needs.
There's lots of political news, so why isn't it in Easy English NEWS this month? First, we don't know the facts yet, and things are changing too fast for a monthly publication to dare to say anything is fixed in place. Second, it's Earth Month, and some things going on with the earth may not make the news each evening, but are more important in the grander scheme of things than politics. We think it's important to remind people of the part we all play in preserving our environment and species that are endangered.
If it's March, can spring be far behind? We're excited here! New things are happening. We hope to launch a digital edition of Easy English NEWS soon. We've also started producing short videos with Elizabeth and Adelaide, so you can meet us and learn a bit about our favorite materials. They'll soon be at our website, Elizabethclaire.com or you can find them on Youtube.com. (Search for Elizabeth Claire.) We now finally have a Facebook Page! Please find us and "Like" us.
With a new national administration, it's a perfect time for a review of how the government works. We're focusing on Congress this month: its diversity, its leaders, and the faces that students are likely to see in the news. In future months, we'll explain how laws are made, and how the various departments of the government work: the Cabinet, the Supreme Court, Homeland Security, the FBI, state and local governments.
Happy New Year! May all your resolutions be kept and bring great results. If you have any colleagues who would benefit from a free sample, email or write to us and give us their addresses. We'll be glad to send them a recent issue with a teacher's guide. I'll thank you and they'll thank you. You are always invited to tell us what you think of the month's issue. We love to hear what works and doesn't work in your classroom.
