In our January issue...

A new Statue of Liberty Museum will open in 2019. The story on page 1 starts a series on "Symbols of America." The instant conversation activity is on heroes, another theme of this issue. There are many examples of heroes on the pages of this issue. Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" is a group, The Guardians, journalists who were killed or imprisoned in the last year including Jamal Khashoggi, Washington Post columnist who was murdered at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. The nation and the world paid tribute to President George H. W. Bush, who died Nov. 30. President Bush was decorated for heroism in World War II. He was part of the Greatest Generation. The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is featured and a movie review of "Selma" is included. The Season for Nonviolence starts on Jan. 30. "Justice" is the word of the year from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Another Women's March will be held on Jan. 19. There is an end-of-the year review on the top news stories of 2018. Many 50th anniversary celebrations were observed in 2018 including the founding of the Special Olympics. What is your favorite winter sport? There is a story on a busser for people at work. In our Teachers' Corner we congratulate two students who were honored with Adult Education Students Succeed Awards.
