Journalism helps us navigate a complex world, shines a light on the truth, and provides analysis, insight and context to the most pressing issues of our day. In this summit for educators and librarians, The New York Times Education and Library Subscription Program brings you a series of discussions featuring Times journalists, leaders in education, and the staff members who produce research and education tools at The Times.
Join us as we take a peek behind the curtain at the innovative and urgent work in our newsroom, as well as engage in informative conversations on the tools, resources and tips that can help educators and librarians use journalism as a method for learning and growth for their students and communities.
This event aims to inspire educators from high school to higher education — and librarians of all kinds — with insight and ideas on the world of journalism and how to make it part of their curriculum and programming.
