EDUCATOR TESTIMONIALS:

  • HCN provides some of the most timely, insightful and broad-reaching analysis of a wide range of issues in the West. Thus, it is invaluable for introducing students to good writing, to this region, and for providing case studies to compare to local contexts.
  • The students in my Land Use in the American West class have to write-up three current event assignments as part of their final grade. They found the free HCNs extremely helpful and relevant. I heard from several of them that they also valued reading them purely for their own enjoyment and interest as well. Thank you!!
  • Having access to High Country News was an invaluable resource for my freshman students in our introductory Environment and Natural Resource Problems & Policies course here at the University of Wyoming. It allowed the students to have a consistent and reliable source of current ENR issues in the West, and also helped them discern different kinds of academic and popular sources, and examine issues from multiple perspectives. Using HCN allowed them to see that the approach we take in class--to use critical lenses and ask data-driven questions--is one that helps us all understand and consider solutions to complex issues in our homes, region, and world.
