Introduction to ‘Current Events Conversations’

Thousands of students from around the world share their opinions and creative ideas by commenting on our daily writing prompts. Each week we round up some of our favorite student comments to spotlight in our Current Events Conversation.

Teachers tell us that this feature gets their students excited about writing in a few different ways. Our moderated comment section gives students an authentic audience for their writing. These weekly roundups can also serve as mentor texts for students as they hone their own writing skills. Plus, students get excited to see their names and writing celebrated in The New York Times!
