Want to jump-start a Lang Arts class? Try the By Heart series from The Atlantic. (“Authors share and discuss their all-time favorite passages in literature.“) What would your students pick for theirs?
(This series has been going on since January 4, 2013, usually with two or more articles per month, so lots of possibilities!)
For language use, there’s First Words from the New Your Times (“Essays on what language reveals about our moment.”) Words shape our non-fiction world, too.
