Easy English Times in the news

In our January issue...

Donald Trump was named TIME Magazine 'Person of the Year.' The presidential election was the top news story of 2016. Other lists of top news stories included the Orlando terrorist attack at the Pulse Club. A teacher from Orlando wrote about her Community English Club's response to that event--valuable information for other teachers and tutors. Citizenship looks at the First Amendment. There are photos of two different protests held after the election. The White House and Oval Office are important symbols. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday is observed in January and community service is encouraged. American author Mark Twain is featured in an instant activity. There is also a sports-related instant activity on hockey. The 2016 deaths of Janet Reno and John Glenn are reported. Given the recent death of Fidel Castro, our series on landmarks looks at Miami's Freedom Tower, the 'Ellis Island of the South.' The history of the exodus of Cubans to the United States during the Cold War is told. The Cuban Assistance Center was closed in 1974 and the building is now a National Historic Landmark.  A reader thanks President Gerald Ford for his help to the Vietnamese people who were saved during Operation Babylift and also saved from boats as they left their country. Another reader writes a book review on 'Daughter of Fortune' by Isabel Allende. A play to read with children encourages family literacy. What are your New Year's resolutions? The topic for conversation is staying healthy.  Additional tips on protecting yourself and your family are shared this month by Chuck Bingaman. Toni Alberson discusses the idiom "thin skinned." All this and more in our January issue.

Happy 2017!
