Teachers’ use of a good newspaper in the classroom will keep students connected to the world around them while providing better models for writing.
—David Kohlmann, Southside High School, San Antonio, Texas
As a high school journalism teacher, I believe it is important for students to be shown models of excellent writing and reporting.
—Justin Raisner, Carlmont High School, Belmont, California
Having a polished publication such as yours would be a routine reminder as to the importance that what we write has the possibility to be read by millions of people daily.
—Adam Brachmann, Dysart High School, El Mirage, Arizona
The WSJ is, hands-down, one of the most illustrative sources of the best news leads out there. As a journalism teacher, I will purposefully use the WSJ as an instructional tool.
—Anne Weisgerber, Summit Senior High School, Summit, New Jersey.
Students are intimidated reading a newspaper, and I hope by exposing them to The Wall Street Journal on a regular basis will produce skilled readers and confident, well-informed individuals.
—Martha J. Smith, Centennial High School, Roswell, Georgia
High school freshmen and sophomores should experience America’s premier news organizations in business and economics, general reporting and politics. The Wall Street Journal is essential for this instructional goal.
—Mark Eaton, T.C. Williams High School, Alexandria, Virginia
My 30 newspaper journalism students would benefit greatly this year by having access to the excellent writing that is always present in The Wall Street Journal.
—Michael Goodrich-Stuart, Hanover High School, Mechanicsville, Virginia
The lesson plans that accompany the Journal will be used to develop skills, especially reading comprehension so we can better write our stories and in return help our student body become knowledgeable about the nation’s hottest topics.
—Elizabeth Erin Coggins, Sparkman High School, Harvest, Alabama
I believe the Wall Street Journal offers a perspective I would like my students to explore. In addition, there is great value for them in reading professionally written and edited articles to help them improve their own journalistic writing style. The Wall Street Journal subscription would allow me to expose my AP Language students to current events as seen through the eyes of WSJ reporters, a different perspective than our local paper.
—Lisa M. Shapiro, Northwest High School, Germantown, Maryland
If my school was to receive a free subscription to the Wall Street Journal, my students would pursue it daily and learn from the articles, design, infographics, angles, subjects, and most importantly, the expertise shown in this internationally popular and frontrunner on stock news newspaper.
—Brandon Martin, Helias Catholic High School, Jefferson City, Missouri
When reading a WSJ article, I can always expect to find all sides of any current issue represented. Additionally, the digital format will allow me to teach students the myriad conventions of online writing and reporting.
–Daniel J. McKeon, Gilmer High School, Ellijay, Georgia
A free subscription to the Wall Street Journal would represent a luxury beyond our wildest imaginations.
–Sandra S. Hurtte, Union Grove High School, McDonough, Georgia
The addition of The WSJ will enable my students to expand their knowledge on issues they must understand to be successful and to participate effectively in our democracy.
–Beth Swann, Nation Ford High School, Fort Mill, South Carolina
By reading articles from wsj.com, I will be able to discuss the marked difference between professional journalists being accountable to proper standards of reporting and sourcing information compared to the myriad citizen journalists (or often unqualified, unaffiliated “freelance” reporters) essentially providing extended anecdotes feigning as journalism.
—Scott Tuffiash, Avonworth High School, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
We seek to deepen and strengthen student engagement and increase electronic resources through this digital subscription.
–Patricia M. Wardell, Holy Name School, Fall River, Massachusetts
I also encourage students to stay abreast of current events as some of our writing assignments relate to what is happening in the world today.
–Rene’ S. Horton, Pleasant Hill Middle School, Lexington, South Carolina
