This is a good book for advanced ESL students to use. It provides newspaper "clippings" from a variety of papers on many subjects. The students can practice reading, understanding headlines and then have critical discussions regarding the articles. The reading helps to expand their vocabulary and the discussions stimulate critical thinking. I have been using it for several weeks with my class of advanced Asian students and they all seem to like it very much and have been very responsive in the discussions. It works well for a group of 4 to 8 students and I think it helps to have a good leader.
