It is a great design, and the article, I’m sure, will have interested your students.
I so appreciate using such relevant materials in a classroom. I’m sure your students responded well to it, were quite engaged. Sometimes I forget that the news I find interesting may also be interesting to my students (how about that!). Plus, doing this sort of exercise helps cement it in their minds in such an authentic way. Thanks for the reminder!
