Each week I see tutors and students alike pick [News for You] up during the break time, read an article, and then engage with someone else (students and tutors) about the information.
It's such a natural way of connecting all of the people in our community over the current events of the day, and no one feels like they are being talked down to, or even "taught" anything at all!
