CNN Student News
A great place to visit when you are looking for topics to discuss in class. Thanks to Free Technology for teachers I was reminded about this sight again. Great place to visit before oral exam.  Here they talk about helping out with healthy food.  CNN Student News. Your students could explore the question of how much should the government get involved in the daily lives of its citizens? Your students could also explore the reasons why food deserts exist in poor urban areas.
