Some sample Articles of the Week

Kelly Gallagher’s Article of the Week is becoming more popular. I’m happy about that. After all, it was one of the most successful parts of my English 9 class last year.

Several people have asked me for more examples of my AoWs. So here are most of the ones I used last year. There are about 30 of them:


Feel free to use them, modify them, get ideas from them, discard them.

You’ll see that some are “once-onlys,” like the article on Osama bin Laden’s death. Others are local to San Francisco or California. But in general, many are still usable this year.

Let me know what you think!

Also, I’m interested in finding out how you use AoWs in your class. I use AoWs as warm-ups, while Mr. Gallagher uses his for homework. How do you use yours? 

Please share your brilliant insights!
