Examine the behind-the-scenes details--that influence stories in The New York Times about current political and governmental events. The New York Times provides many issues for lively discussion. In addition, The Washington Post, CNN, and National Public Radio will be sources for breaking stories. News articles and videos seed the discussion, but they often grow into entirely different topics based on student interest and participation. Students are encouraged to ask hard questions, and to participate actively and respectfully in class discussion.
