Good News, Bad News is a listening and conversation text based on an entertaining collection of actual news reports about interesting characters and events. Eighteen three-page units are presented in a radio news-story format. All units feature a series of task-based activities designed to guide students from general to detailed understanding of the news report and to provide meaningful fluency practice related to the story's theme.

Good News, Bad News features:

  • Short, focused units that can be completed in one class period
  • Interesting, light-hearted listening passages based on actual stories from the news
  • Vocabulary-building exercises that introduce and practice new vocabulary
  • A wide variety of communicative, task-based listening and speaking activities
  • An optional "Extra Practice" section to consolidate new vocabulary
Each unit offers:
  • "Tuning In," a visual activity designed to introduce the context of the story. It offers a vocabulary building exercise to identify and teach the new language contained in the listening passage.
  • "Good News, Bad News," a series of task-based listening activities that leads students from general to detailed understanding of the story
  • "Signing Off," communicative speaking tasks that build on the theme of the story and provides opportunities for student personalization
