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.

Just putting something into the Trash or the Recycle Bin doesn't actually delete it. You then have to *empty* the Trash or Recycle Bin. (Once a year, I hear about somebody whose hard drive is full, despite having practically no files. It's because over the years, they've put 79 gigabytes' worth of stuff in the Recycle Bin and never emptied it.)
