About Our Newspaper English Worksheets
You have found the newspaper English section of the site which has worksheets related to different articles and mass media. There are currently 39 worksheets in this category with more being added regularly. This particular worksheet uses a newspaper article to get students to think about traffic police. It includes a range of activities including a true or false section, a role play, and a writing activity. If your students are not quite at this level yet, consider an alternative worksheet to use in your classroom.
Newspaper articles are a great ESL resource. You can use them to introduce vocabulary related to a particular topic, start discussions, and even when talking about reported speech with learners of any level. Sometimes you will have to create your own article or story rather than using something from an actual newspaper. This will ensure that it is written at a level suitable for your learners and focuses on something you specifically want to work on in class. With more advanced classes, you can encourage your students to read English newspapers outside of class and even submit ones that they think are interesting for you to consider using as part of a lesson. This gives students more practice as well as some input on the content of their course. Additionally it allows you to determine what they are most interested in. If and how you include newspaper English in your lessons is entirely up to you and depends a lot on your students.
