The Day is a popular online current affairs resource for students and includes lots of activities and links for all curriculum areas – making it ideal for hard-pressed teachers to utilise in class or tutor time. Suited for students aged 11-18.
The Day and The Day Explorer aim to provoke discussion and stimulate thinking skills amongst students, utilising current news and issues.
This is available as a green module as part of your subscription.
“The Day has been an invaluable resource here at HAJC. We initially subscribed to use the website for literacy and the promotion of reading. The Day is regularly used across the school by tutors of year 9, 10 and 11 groups in registration. It is a great way to get students reading and engaging in topical issues. The Day has also become very popular with subject staff and is being used in a variety of areas from English to Geography. It is very versatile and there are so many articles; you can almost find anything you need to aid your teaching.”
