sounds like a good intro

i remembered: http://www.breakingnewsenglish.com/

you could use these stories to provide examples on which to model good writing as per the writing fun method (identifiying the key components)

E.g. you could go from identifying the 5 wh-'s in photos to identifying them in (ESL leveled) articles.

When you get an e-mail message from eBay or your bank, claiming that you have an account problem or a question from a buyer, it's probably a "phishing scam" intended to trick you into typing your password. Don't click the link in the message. If in doubt, go into your browser and type "www.ebay.com" (or whatever) manually.
