Faculty use of NYT inEducation:

  • Articles recommended by faculty are often accompanied by prompts for discussion, critical thinking, or analysis. Article recommendations typically include a summary of the article as well as sections such as "Why Does This Matter," "Digging Deeper," or "Discussion Prompts."
  • Faculty-recommended articles always include tags for sorting by subject and learning outcomes. These tags are useful when teaching a class with a specific learning outcome or one that focuses on a particular subject. 
  • There are also subject tags for different levels of study, such as “Level: 300-400" or “Level: Graduate” to help when deciding if the material is appropriate for a particular class.
