Talking About The Government Shutdown


If your students are confused by the government shutdown (imagine that!), this story by VOA News is written in simplified English, and attempts to explain particulars of the US system of government in plain terms. There is audio that accompanies that text, so students can listen and read at the same time.

This quiz at the New York Times Learning Network could serve as a nice introduction to the topic as well.
