ATTENTION: Educators, Students, Parents and Grandparents

The Nation is excited to announce the launch of the 2011/2012 Educators Program, bringing America's most incisive writers and editors to classrooms with free teaching material.

In this year of economic uncertainty and primary elections, the corporate-owned media will not be offering lessons about: the crisis in higher education; conservatives demonizing teachers, cops, firefighters and public workers; the phony "panic" over debt; vets abandoned by the VA; taxes and the Tea Party and much, much more.

Where can students and teachers turn for more than they're getting from mainstream media? The Nation, that's where: the most independent, strong-voiced and fearless champion of democracy in this country.

The first of twenty-four weekly teaching guides (available free) will be posted on Monday, August 29, 2011. Check the Educators link on our homepage, or go to to view prior teaching guides, to sign up for The Nation's Educator e-mail Newsletter, or to preview our pre-planned Learning Packs.



1. FREE Weekly Teaching Guides

Published weekly and offered as a PDF, each guide includes: a student page with reading comprehension, vocabulary, research and writing lessons; a teacher page with answers and suggestions for further activities and discussion; a weekly archive article that compares parallel events over time.
