This year marks the 99th anniversary of Anzac Day. There are so many stories about Anzac Day, it makes another great reading, writing and discussion topic. As with April Fools’ Day, you’ll find the link to a Holiday Lesson on it on the Breaking News English homepage. You’ll also find a wealth of stories and images of Anzac Day on the internet. Stories of courage, tragedy, stories which put the human face on what is often described as the most important day in the military histories of both Australia and New Zealand, the tradition of the Ode as well as the history behind the events which led up to the attack on April 25, 1915.
If you’re using web pages as the basis for your lessons, a reminder that Literacy Face to Face has some helpful ideas on how to do that. The link to Literacy Face to Face is available via the drop down menu on the Literacy Network homepage: Volunteer tutors – Online Resources.
