Article hopping

Each Monday / Tuesday one of the students will be nominated to choose a newspaper article for everybody to read. It must be an article, not a news report (see examples from previous years).
If you are nominated, you must choose a newspaper article (you can use the links to newspaper sites below) and send me the link by Thursday.
I'll post the link on this page so that everybody can read the article during the weekend.
All the students must choose three words or expressions to learn by heart.
On Monday / Tuesday we will talk briefly about the article share our vocabulary choices. Then the student who chose the article will nominate another one.
