Roughly every month I design and distribute, Zeigo, an arts-focused English newsletter to my students. It regularly includes information on things like music videos, comics, song lyrics, art projects, and blogs that students can look into more deeply outside of school. Editions include English corresponding to what each grade has learned at that point in the year. While the newsletter is time-sensitive in that respect, it can be used for any year and its size and printed dates can be changed simply with white out and a copy machine.
