Quick look, November 10, 2017

Tough day to be an elementary teacher using the New York Times to talk about the news. Front page: two graphic stories detailing sexual assault allegations, one about the graphic raw video footage of the Texas church shooting, two boring stories about tax reform and a story about President Trump in China (only front-page story appropriate for class discussion today). Turn the page inside for the “quote of the day” in large font and it is pulled, of course, from the sex assault story and is inappropriate for an elementary classroom. I ended up leaving the entire front page section out of the classroom today for the first time in years.
