p.103 - Compound Adjectives: interesting page form bbc - could summarize and make a chart to be on the board to illustrate the lesson - students would take notes as we offer examples. http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/grammar/learnit/learnitv224.shtml

P.103 - New Year's in Time Square can even stop before the mark of 3 minutes, good view This one is good just to have an idea of how is it in Paris poor sound quality and boring if you look at iot for more than 30 seconds, however, does give an idea of the whole not so fireworkish celebration Amateur video, but short and good sample of Chicago P. 105 - The future seen from the past http://www.louhau.edu.mo/www/discol/english/future/future_seen_from_the_past.htm The glass elevator.

http://www.quia.com/quiz/1061842.html?AP_rand=636558282

P.121. Charity begins at home
Fundraisers!
just a page to "illustrate" the topic and give students a more concrete idea of how widespread is the concepr of fundraising in the US. I mean, that is really part of our daily lives! That may help them to establish paralels with the Brazilian reality and also help with the fundraiser event on page123)

A taste of one of the most genuine American fundraising: girls scouts cookies!
http://www.girlscouts.org/program/gs_cookies/

P. 124 - Ethical tourism
Do you want anything better than displaying the web page for the organization mentioned in the article?
I liked the "How to avoid guilt trips" - the one about water is super interesting
It's about time we started raising awareness of how water is not a renewable resource.
