My Students

My students are mainly 9th graders in Foundations of Government and Civics classes.

Students love that I always try to bring them the latest news stories relevant to the topic they are learning.

They have begun paying attention to news and telling me what they have learned and taking an interest in the world around them.

The students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have many interests. I want to bring them stories on events that will pique their interests.

My Project

We live in a time where information around the world helps us learn about ourselves and things we care about. Many students do not have access to news or don't know where the best places to find articles that can help them better understand the world around them. This is why I want to bring the news to them through The New York Times Upfront Magazine.

Having used Upfront Magazine before, as a student learning resource, I know the many benefits for sharing these articles and using them as part of the classroom library.

I want to use these sources to introduce civics in different ways

Please help me bring civics alive!
