The New York Times “paywall” goes into effect on March 28th. Since many teachers, including me, use The Times site, and since the topic itself of free or not pay access to content is in itself a good classroom topic (and the question about “gaming” the paywall could make for a good ethics discussion), I thought a “The Best….” list would be useful.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About The New York Times Paywall:
Many teachers, like me, are big fans of the New York Times Learning Network. They always have great resources. The site is on The Best Places To Find Free (And Good) Lesson Plans On The Internet list. Happily, the Learning Network will be exempt from the new Times paywall. In other words, it will continue to be free and accessible at all times, along with NY Times articles they reference in their lessons.
