If you ever had to teach this part of the exam you may have spent endless hours trying to find a picture with good enough content related to the topics so it can be described by the students.

Because one never has enough gap fill exercises here you have a complete selection of slightly adapted articles (one piece of news for each subtopic) ready to be projected and printed for your students.

Topics included: pollution, energy, protecting the planet, immigration, integration, racism, wealth and poverty, law and order and last but not least the impact of scientific and technological progress.
