thinking for themselves
For too long, schools have been forced to define “education” too narrowly. Classrooms produce ways of thinking that are about test scores rather than being valuable for out-of-school contexts and purposes. The solution is to find new ways of embedding critical thinking and debate right across the curriculum at all stages of learning by using The Day.

“The Day is an invaluable resource for teachers of English. Feature articles provide a platform from which stimulating discussions can be launched, with the knowledge that the sources are reliable, up-to-date and relevant to young people wishing to understand and critically engage with the world in which they live.“
Dominique Roberts, The Wykeham Collegiate, South Africa
“My students the other day read through the latest article on Ukraine and Russia and we had a really good conversation about it. It’s nice using it from that point of view, and getting students to think about what’s happening and their own points of view.”“
Vanessa Cripps, Literacy Lead, Longfield Academy
