Finding Resources: Accessing Contemporary Articles

Accessing Contemporary Articles

In our new Timely Connections section, we will be linking contemporary articles to primary sources and teaching ideas. Some of the articles may come from websites, such as The New York Times and the The Washington Post, that restrict access to their content. Most sites provide subscription discounts to educators and allow anyone to access a limited number of free articles per month. But what happens if you don’t have a subscription or when you’ve reached the monthly limit? Turn to your libraries! Check with your school or district to see if they have digital subscriptions. If not, try your local library. Many, if not most, public libraries will have subscriptions to the nation’s top newspapers.
