I have my all of my Journalism 1, newspaper and yearbook students analyze media (stories, photos or videos) every week in their weekly Article Analysis homework assignment. Some often run into trouble accessing some newspaper websites that have paywalls. So if your students have similar problems, here’s one way you can help them access The Wall Street Journal.
The following is from the Dow Jones News Fund:
“The Dow Jones News Fund and the publishers of The Wall Street Journal are partnering to give high school journalism teachers the chance to win digital subscriptions to the newspaper.
Teachers are asked to email up to 250 words explaining why they need the newspaper for their media classes to firstname.lastname@example.org with “WSJ.com” in the subject line by Sept. 16. At the top of each essay, the teacher must include their name, school name, address, city, state, zip code, and a phone number including area code.
Subscriptions for the most persuasive essayists start in October. Winning essays will be posted on https://www.newsfund.org.
Since 2009, publishers of the Journal have contributed more than 100 subscriptions to essayists and winners in DJNF’s annual Teacher Awards program.
