Student 新聞やNewYork Times・Los Angeles Timesを準備。
学生に好きな記事を選ばせ、Summerize ・Why did you chose that topic, what is your interestなどを話させる。それが終わると、各自で個々に発表。『私に分かるように説明 してください』とくぎをさしておく。

How did students react?
They reacted well. They seemed to be having fun!
They discussed a lot about their article what they chosen.

Did they engage with each other and you?

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
YES! Definitely! 

Why or why not?
Topicを選ぶのと、要約をするのに少し時間がかかったようだが、It was really fun to know the article that students chose. They made a lot of jokes with the articles, and discuss a lot.
