NY Times Article of the Day
Finding current and engaging articles can be a challenge, which is why the NY Times Article of the Day column is such a fantastic resource.
Here is their description of the site: “Every weekday we choose an important or interesting news or feature story to become our Article of the Day, then write a quick series of questions and activities designed to help students both understand the piece and connect it to their own lives. Each edition has suggestions for engaging students before they read, comprehension and critical thinking questions to support them as they go, and ideas for taking the topic further when they’re done.”
Topics range from science to sports to current events to video games and the activities offered are designed to spark critical thinking and discussion.
