New Curriculum Design
Hi dear teachers,
                            Last Tuesday our headmistress gave us the NEW CURRICULUM DESIGN we have to follow this year. 
Last year I asked my students to buy a new book "Total English" and it was a bit expensive.I donīt know what to do now because THE NEW CURRICULUM DESIGN suggests to work with A LOT OF TOPICS AND THEMES that are not present in this book.
I have searched on esl printables for some of those topics but I couldnīt find many of them.

The topics are:

*Contents to work with 1st year (students aged 12- 13)
-The enviroment: the neighbourhood, the town, city and country
-The world of work: jobs and professions; material resources and tools.
- Means of communication and tecnologies: e-mails, text messeges, advertisements, postcards, , fax.
*Contents to work with 2nd year (aged 13-14)
-The enviroment: ecology; ecological problems; natural disasters
- Free time activities: places to share and socialize with others; the stadium;shopping center; fast food; etc.
-The world of work: child labour; children rights.
*Contents to work with 3rd year ( aged 14-15)
-Tatoos, piercings, graffities; the art in the streets.
- Citizenship.
-Means of communication and tecnologies: the web, tv, mobile phones, etc. 

What can I do?
Thanks a lot in advance.
