The mission of The Learning Network is to help people teach and learn with The New York Times. The Learning Network publishes about 1,000 teaching resources each school year, all based on using Times content — articles, essays, images, videos, graphics and podcasts — as teaching tools across subject areas. These resources include lessons of the day, writing prompts, picture prompts, news quizzes, student contests, and more. With features like the daily Student Opinion question, thousands of teenagers each week join a global conversation on topics from politics to pop culture. All of our activities for students, including our daily writing prompts, daily lesson plans, weekly news quizzes, What’s Going On in This Picture?, What’s Going On in This Graph?, Film Club, and more are all free – and they’ve always been free!
