New York Times: Curriculum Integration

A guide to the different ways UNC Charlotte students and faculty can access the New York Times

Integrating NYTimes into your Courses

Contact your Subject Librarian for ideas on how to integrate the NYTimes.com and accompanying apps into your courses.  Below are just a few ideas to help you get started:

  1. Create an assignment or in-class activity that could help students find inspiration for a research topic using the NYTimes.com
  2. Have students create customized news alerts for topics they are researching for class and have them use Canvas or Moodle to journal their findings
  3. Search TimesVideo to identify relevant videos from the NYTimes.com to integrate and embed into your Canvas and Moodle courses. Below are some examples.
