I completely agree with the statement "If we are interested in the students' future, then our way of teaching must reflect the future. ''
The right education is the one, which is planned according to the future need. Present students are future job-seekers. The future working environment won't be the same as today. Due to globalization the world changes into a global society, and the advanced technology transforms the organizational infrastructure. So in the future, the students will work as team workers of wide spread teams, in globalized organizations, using ICT (Information and Communication Technology) tools to enhance the given jobs.
Keeping the above working scenario in mind, the current education should provide the students, the needed knowledge and training, to face the working environment with confidence.
When we seek a learning method, which consists of team work, and using ICT tools, Collaborative learning appears to be the right answer.

In literary Analysis writing, it is crucial to study and understand fully the text of a piece. One recommended conceptualized approach is an easy technique to employ. I call this strategy, fractional analysis. Operationally used in my exposition, Fractional analysis is studying the fictional work by components in order to comprehend the whole meanings of a specific work in written forms where reading intervention plays a vital role.
This ingenuity is unconsciously alluded with Bauer (2011)'s "Well Trained Mind" where she asserted that there should be a great understanding of the texts to be able to understand the techniques employed for effective literary understanding when students are able to recognize or classify through intensive reading. In addition to that, Pope (1995) who wrote his book, "Textual Intervention: Critical and Creative Strategies for Literary Studies" says that Interpretation of texts always entails interaction with texts.

Now although admittedly there are more things you can do with newspapers in an advanced English class, there are still lots of interesting activities you can use newspapers for in your Intermediate and Elementary classes.

Some English teachers hold as much as six class periods in a day, ...
