From Carleton College's Science Education Resource Center (SERC) comes this pedagogical resource designed to help educators who want to incorporate news articles into their quantitative reasoning courses. This teaching aid addresses the entire lesson-planning process, including how to choose an article, determine the pedagogical motivation for using the article, and specific suggestions of ways to implement the article's use in the classroom. Several examples and helpful tips are also included, as are links to related activities and teaching aids on the SERC website. Interested teachers may also wish to explore more detailed examples of classroom activities developed around newspaper articles via a link at the top of the page. This resource was last updated, as of this writing, in May 2018 and is part of SERC's Pedagogical Service project; it was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. STEM educators at many levels may find this teaching resource helpful.
