New York Times
To help teachers weave Common Core State Standards into their weekly lessons, Sarah Gross and Jonathan Olsen, English and social studies teachers from New Jersey, last year started giving their students practice writing prompts based on the articles in the New York Times. They will continue to try out questions in their classes this year, with the best questions appearing in the newspaper and online as weekly writing prompts.
