High-interest articles are a great way to get struggling readers to tackle difficult vocabulary. Here is a instructional activity that includes such an article.

Though this resource was designed in 2005, US tension with North Korea remains a relevant topic for exploration and understanding. Unfortunately, this lecture and reading-based lesson is unlikely to engage the class. The end product is a short essay that provides a viable explanation of what, in the student's opinion, is most likely to transpire between the US and North Korea. Some components may be useful, but an underwhelming lesson overall.
