WHAT IS NEWSPAPERS IN EDUCATION?
NIE (Newspapers in Education) is a nationally recognized collaboration between corporate and community sponsors, local newspapers, and schools providing students with the opportunity to become more literate and knowledgeable citizens. NIE provides local schools with the newspaper and educational materials to enhance learning through real-life experiences relevant to students’ daily lives.
Teachers receive class sets of newspapers delivered to their school, packed with news and information relevant to every grade level and subject area. The newspaper is an exciting, real world supplement to traditional classroom resources. It’s a “living textbook” that gets updated every day!
WHAT’S IN THE NEWSPAPER FOR STUDENTS?
Many issues and topics in the daily newspaper mirror student interests, making the newspaper relative to their world. NIE makes teaching and learning with the newspaper even easier with sponsored newspapers and specially designed curriculum guides. NIE provides students with hands-on learning activities and innovative ideas that turn the newspaper into a multipurpose tool. Newspapers provide students with an exciting addition to textbook learning.
