Afterwards, the secretary will report to the class summing up the content of each of the articles of his partners.  

    • Radio/audio files: In small groups, bi-weekly, each student will present a summary of a radio/audio file (news report, interview, etc.) One student from the group, the secretary, will take notes from each summary presented. Afterwards, the secretary will report to the class.
