As the title suggests, this is really only applicable to teenagers — or wannabes. Once the students get to Level 4 or so, they’re inordinately interested in North American culture and what it’s like to be a teenager here. The music, the clothing, and the relative freedom are the big draws.
Teen Vogue is a fine place to start.
This would be easiest to use with a group of girly girls, but there are a few articles applicable to all of the students: try under the My Life section. There are also links to other interesting articles on the web. Here’s a small selection:
School Advice (choose an article that might interest the kids)
The Harlem Shake (why should they be deprived of ridiculous internet memes? 🙂 )
Seven New Books to Read (keep them up-to-date with our literary culture)
Volunteering (a relatively foreign concept to those who spend their days memorising and doing worksheets)
…and, yes, they’ll know most of the cover models.
