It took a while (I had to discontinue the initial foray with World News for Kids in late 2009), but I'm happy to say that World News for Kids is now BACK on English Raven!
My problem with the first try at this was producing too much each week (8 stories with listening files and 32 pages of worksheets) in an endeavour that doesn't exactly earn me any income. In the end, it needed to be shelved to allow me to concentrate more on making a living!
The new approach cuts things back to one level (of four) per week, hence two news stories and 8 pages of worksheet material. This will hopefully be a manageable enough load that I can produce news articles on a more regular basis without burning myself out.
So, the latest story (covering April Fools' Day and Google's Gmail Motion prank) is now up here.
