Teaching Resources from The Guardian

On 2 May 2017, as part of our annual English seminar, 57 Norwegian teachers visited the Guardian’s headquarter in central London. Head of Education, Margaret Holborn, promised to share all the useful resources presented. You find them below.

“Lots of viewpoints, knowledge, debate, questions, resources, not to mention inspiration that I can take with me into the classroom.”
