        NY Times Learning Network

        Freshmen at High Technology High School in Lincroft, NJ read an assigned article from the New York Times or the Asbury Park Press daily. The students then write about and discuss the current events--using journalism as a unique platform to learn English language arts and social studies. Teachers Sarah Gross and Jon Olsen incorporate Common Core literacy standards by using the NYTimes Learning Network, an online blog and news site for grades 3-12. The main goals of infusing journalism into the classroom are to make students better critical thinkers and to foster life-long writing and presentation skills.
