Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo I just learned that The New York Times provides K-12 classrooms (in the U.S.) with free subscriptions to the Replica Edition NY Times. The Replica Edition is different from NYTimes.com as it does not offer all of additional features of NYTimes.com. The Replica Edition contains all of the articles found in the daily editions of The New York Times.
With the free subscription to The New York Times Replica Edition you can read and search the last 30 days of newspapers, listen to the articles, and print the articles. Click here to learn more and to apply for the free subscription.
