课时跟踪练(一) Introduction & Reading—Pre-reading
Street Sense is a newspaper in Washington, D．C. about homeless people and issues (问题) that affect them. Homeless or formerly homeless Washingtonians write many of the articles. The newspaper’s business model is based on homeless vendors who sell the newspaper. You can hear them call out “Street Sense for sale！” near subway entrances, lunch places and other areas around the city.
The Street Sense newspaper is housed in an office in a Christian church in Washington. Every other Wednesday about fourteen thousand copies are printed. The newspaper expresses the thoughts and experiences of people who call the streets home. Four staff members work at Street Sense. Two of them are paid. The staff members write the first two pages of the paper. Interns — students working as part of their studies — and volunteers help. Homeless writers provide the rest of the material. This includes poems, stories and essays.
Mary Otto is the editor (编辑) of Street Sense. She came to the paper from the Washington Post newspaper. Mary Otto says severe mental disorders prevent many homeless people from seeking shelter. Such problems can also block them from having close relationships with other people.
Street Sense provides training to the homeless people who want to become part of the sales team. After the training, each student is given ten free copies of Street Sense. Once those are sold, trainees become real sales people. They buy papers for thirty-five cents each and sell them for a dollar.
She says the newspaper plays a part in homeless people’s live which other media can not. “The mainstream media do not usually cover poverty or homelessness too much, unless someone dies or there’s a big rally or some-thing.”
