2015: The Year in Visual Stories and Graphics

Screenshot
Educators who prefer to root their lessons in current events will find much to appreciate in this beautifully arrayed section of the New York Times, in which the renowned news source recounts the year 2015 through visually stunning graphics and images. For example, Derek Watkins' account of Japan's new satellite that snaps a picture of the earth every 10 minutes is accompanied by a drawing of the 17-foot-long orbiter, as well as shots of the swirling masses of typhoons and the red rock deserts of Australia. As well, the Voyages section, sends readers straight to the heart of Nigeria, the Black Sea, Tokyo, Venezuela, and other exotic locales with stunning video and astonishing photography. Or, readers may like to explore the Walking New York interactive, in which they may discover Sonny Rollins's favorite corner of the Williamsburg Bridge and locate the best can-collecting route in Bushwick. Culled from the past year, the material here is as aesthetically enlivening as it is educational. Including Visual Features, Longform Stories, Data-Driven Articles, Maps, Motion Graphics and Video Stories, and Data Visualization, one can imagine many exciting uses for the classroom hide in these stores.
