My students need copies of New York Times Upfront magazine because it provides high-interest, quality nonfiction content that we use for everything from vocabulary development to argumentation analysis.
I have been serving in a classroom for nearly twenty years and I can honestly say my current students are unique in their utter eagerness to learn new things, while still being "normal" tenth graders; children struggling with being on the cusp of adulthood. Having taught in Jacksonville since 2005, I, like many others, had a mental image of what my school and its' students would be like. Now, I am embarrassed for having made so many assumptions about the students, who are far more exceptional than I could have imagined.
These students prove that one can be academically focused while retaining his or her unique individuality.
Whether he or she drove to school or took multiple buses to get to campus, every student is remarkably mature, intellectually open and refreshingly tolerant and accepting of each others' considerable differences. Although these students are pushed to excel academically, they are genuinely eager to learn and expand their horizons.
I have used New York Times Upfront magazine in my classroom for nearly a decade. Every issue provides an array of articles, cartoons, and activities to foster the critical thinking and reading skills of high school students.
The students in my Reading for College Success class will greatly benefit from this magazine, as every issue provides students with dozens of opportunities to explore high-interest, current, challenging material.
Likewise, with our subscription I receive access to an assortment of well-developed instructional materials to use with each issue.
Students will be exposed to both in-depth nonfiction articles about current events and argumentative texts that address both sides of an issue. These, as well as the remarkable visual aids throughout the magazine, provide students with ongoing opportunities to refine their reading and analytical skills.
