On-Demand Webinar: Exploring How The Times Can Be Accessible for Every Learner

Register to view the on-demand recording.

The variety of articles, essays, photojournalism, graphics, videos and podcasts we publish daily means that there is no simple answer to the question “What is the reading level of The New York Times?”

In this webinar, we’ll explore how the expanding range of multimedia formats in The Times means there is something for every learner, every day. We’ll discuss strategies for selecting high-interest content that teachers tell us is accessible for a range of learners, including English language learners, middle school students and students with lower reading levels. We’ll also take a tour of the Learning Network’s continually growing library of student activities, which we’ve developed for a broad range of learners. And, we’ll share how to implement scaffolding strategies to make all of these resources, including traditional Times articles, more accessible.

We will be joined by Nicole Daniels, staff editor from The Learning Network, and Marla Sperling-Reich, a speech-language pathologist for the Freehold Regional High School District in New Jersey, who together will share practical teaching ideas and Learning Network resources that you can bring to your classroom right away.

C.T.L.E. credit is available for New York educators. All participants will receive a certificate of completion.
