That's News to Me
Teach English with lessons featuring content from The Washington Post and The Associated Press. Advanced lessons are based around authentic articles and videos. Intermediate and low-intermediate lessons are based around articles that have been modified with permission. Many lessons include mature themes.
Some articles may be opinion-based and others may be considered biased. We recommend exploring bias with your students when using lessons from this section. You may also need to provide extra context in order for your students to understand the big picture, especially in a fluid situation.
Note: This is a digital-only section due to licensing restrictions with our content partners. If you can't assign digital tasks, you can broadcast the digital lesson on a shared screen or projector. Learn more here.
