Not only what we see and read on the news nowadays but also what we witness around us (family, friends, neighbours...) everyday makes all of us feel really pessimistic about this country's future. However, I can't resist a bit of optimism and the video below tries to reflect the Spanish crisis from different point of view.

"Crisis, unemployment, debt, premium risk... It seems impossible to detach Spain from these words. However, if we pay closer attention, we see Spain is a country full of opportunities!", at least this is what the video intends to transmit.

Does it succeed it? Send me a voicemail comment about the video, how it made you feel, whether you agree or not, about how the crisis has affected you or people you know....Try to be optimistic! After all we're about to end the school year and that's always an occasion for celebration.

Deadline: Thursday 30th

Read and Tell

I know you were missing my weekly assignments, so I'm back with a new one for next week. Since you have been working on your news shows, the assignment is also about news.

Go to TweenTribune, a free, not-for-profit online newspaper for teens. It is updated daily with stories from the Associated Press that are chosen based on relevancy to adolescents. Go to the site by clicking on the image below. If you scroll down the site, you'll see all the different topics. Select a topic of your concern and read one piece of news.
Send me a voicemail telling me about it in your own words. Remember: reading is not allowed. We'll also comment in class, so make sure you don't forget about your news!

Deadline: Thursday 23rd
