The Atlantic magazine announced earlier this week that they are dropping the subscription and login requirement for their website. All of the content in the periodical will now appear online for free.
Application for Educators
1. The Atlantic is written on a reading level a little too high for the average high school student, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t full of valuable lessons for “gifted and talented” high school students. The Atlantic.com covers the most current topics and most important to Americans stories in great depth. One of this month’s stories takes an in-depth look at life in Jena, Louisiana.
2. The Atlantic’s multimedia center provides a lot of information accessible to all students regardless of reading ability. The slide shows available from the multimedia center are made in a National Geographic style presenting fantastic imagery along with excellent information about the featured topic.
