Lindsay Sprague's curator insight, January 29, 2015 4:16 PM

Cool!  I'm an English teacher, and anything that helps to promote literacy and exposure to new and interesting texts gets an A in my book.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, February 5, 2015 5:57 PM

Choose a theme - choose a discussion question - choose a text.

Open-source resources offering a great range for primary through to year 12 students.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, February 11, 2015 9:07 AM

These texts can be downloaded and are aimed at varying literacy levels. The topics are broad and can be used to promote critical thinking. In an ELT context they could be used to form the basis of discussions. The text worksheets also contain questions to encourage reflection and debate.
