Now, more than ever, high school students need access to an accurate, credible source for current events. Between the election and the pandemic, we’re living through unprecedented times. As teachers, we look for classroom news sources that are accessible, cover the world, offer fresh perspectives, and encourage teens to dig deeper.
That’s where The Wall Street Journal‘s High School program changes the game. This WSJ program will help you engage your students as readers, writers, and problem solvers. Bonus: students can access the resources from anywhere, so it doesn’t matter if you are learning in person or virtually.
What we like about the WSJ High School Subscription:
- Your ENTIRE high school gets unlimited article access to WSJ.com, which they can access from anywhere. Think about how useful it would be for different classroom lessons: social studies (What’s really going on in this part of the world? What would you do as a world leader?); science (insight into the latest research); technology (talk about the latest trends that excite these digital natives); and more.
- Teachers love it. “It was so helpful for our teachers and students to have home access to WSJ during remote learning in the spring,” says Sara, a teacher at Fort Worth Country Day School in Texas.
- You and your students get podcast and video access. Listen to compelling interviews with WSJ editors, industry experts, newsmakers, and current events influencers. Have students break into small groups to discuss the topic of the day and reconnect to reflect on points of interest, argument, or common ground.
- Free classroom guides and case studies let you make the most of your school’s subscription. You’ll have direct access to tons of resources, which you can use to lead your classroom discussions on everything from business and IT to law and marketing. You’ll also find great ideas on how to assign articles and assess students from educators who have used the WSJ platform. Yes, you get to really dig in, too!
