As the dust settles in this post-election season, the OWHL would like to propose one possible issue for unification: news literacy. As educators, we want to prepare our students to pursue and analyze the news so that they in turn can become informed, engaged citizens. How can we do this in an often contentious, sometimes specious news landscape?
Thanks to an Abbot grant, the OWHL is excited to announce its latest project: The Bell Tower: an anthology of student work. The Bell Tower will be a curated collection of exemplary student work produced over the course of a single school year in all disciplines, published in print and online.
All members of the PA community – faculty, staff, and students – have free digital access to the New York Times through the OWHL. Once you register for an account, you will have unlimited access to the Times for one year and can read it via the website or the app (both iPhone and Android).
To register for an account, go to nytimes.com/grouppass while physically on campus and connected to PA's network. Then create a free NYTimes.com account using your PA e-mail address.
If you have any questions or trouble registering, just stop by the OWHL.
