Lesson Plans

The New York Times Learning Network

The New York Times Learning Network is a free service for students in grades 3-12, their teachers and parents. The site is updated Monday through Friday throughout the year. Students can read the day's top stories using Knowledge Tools, take a news quiz about today's world, and play special crossword puzzles. Students can also submit a letter to the editor, ask a reporter a question, or submit a science question and search through the Science Q&A archive. They can also expand their vocabularies and practice their verbal test-taking skills, and even take a Web Exploration on a variety of topics. Teachers can access a daily lesson plan for grades 6-12, written in partnership with The Bank Street College of Education in New York City. Each lesson plan and the article it references can be printed out for classroom use. Previous lessons are available in the archive and in thematic lesson plan units. The site additionally provides teachers with the latest education news from the newspaper.

Izzit Current Events Articles

Every school day a new topic is displayed including discussion questions that accompany each daily news article. These questions are designed to encourage critical thinking, challenge assumptions, and provoke lively classroom discussion.
