Giving Students a Voice: Incorporating Learning Network Contests Into Your Curriculum
An open webinar from the New York Times Learning Network
For 11 years now, The Learning Network has been running contests that offer students a chance to share their ideas and opinions with the world. From photography and editorials to personal narratives and podcasts, our contests give students voice and the opportunity to write for an authentic audience.
Each school year, we run approximately 10 contests, open to students around the world. Tens of thousands of students participate. All of our contests are open to high school students, while a select number are open for middle school students as well.
In this webinar, our editors and guest speakers will walk you through the logistics of participating in our various contests and share how they align with our free yearlong writing curriculum. We'll discuss the benefits of teaching with our contests and we’ll explore different ways to integrate them into your curriculum during the 2020-21 school year.
