I resist writing about violence in a classroom newspaper designed to teach reading skills, survival skills, U.S. civics and vocabulary. However, there was such a daily onslaught of TV news about Libya, I succumbed on the basis that our adult and high school students need to know what many Americans are talking about. I have no reporters, so can give only the background and vocabulary for the ongoing story. I’d skip front page top article with younger students.
Meanwhile, it’s Thanksgiving month, so we must remember to count our blessings. I’m making the book What’s So Funny? available to our readers on Amazon Kindle for 99 cents. ($15 if in print.) Free Kindle App for computers. See my website www. elizabethclaire.com. At the website, you’ll also find 6 cloze exercises, six short answer tests, and a vocabulary test for this November issue.
