The PDF forms of the articles on the pages of this Libguide were created by accessing the articles online using the Apple Safari browser and then choosing "Reader View" -- which strips out advertisements and makes the text larger and easier to read. For more info, read this New York Times tech tip.
Sometimes having a physical paper copy -- with a larger font -- helps students focus on the text.
Flipboard is a free app that lets you curate and share collections of articles. Read the online articles in this Libguide via this Flipboard magazine - Readers & Writers.
