"You’re likely to find people from many different countries in your home, school or work places... By keeping up-to-date with current events, you have the opportunity to change your views ...and learn about what’s happening and what matters..."-WACC
Small town, small minds.
My students all come from a small, rural area. Most of them have never been out of this area let alone out of the state. Most of them do not ever watch the news or read the newspaper. They usually do not have any concept of what is happening outside in the "real" world.
My students will use The New York Times Upfront magazines to see how national and world issues affect them. They will be used to challenge their reading skills, help practice writing skills, and participate in thought-provoking debates. They will develop skills that will follow them throughout their lives and their careers.
Receiving these magazines would first of all just delight my students.
They do not often get anything "new." Second of all, it would make learning fun within my classroom. They often get bored with reading literature and poetry and the articles in this magazine would hold their attention and lead to increased learning. The content in this magazine will also allow them to learn about the world outside of their small community and allow them to broaden their views.
