  1. What is Newspaper in Education?

    Newspaper in Education is an international program in existence for more than 60 years. More than 700 newspapers have NIE programs. NIE puts newspapers in classrooms as a topical, relevant curriculum supplement. To participate in NIE, teachers set up a classroom subscription, usually a newspaper for each student in the classroom one day a week. Teachers then use the newspapers in activities that enhance the lessons and skills they teach.

  2. What are the goals of NIE?

    To help students become informed and involved citizens who can determine and guide their own destinies in a democratic society.

    To help students develop skills of critical reading by teaching competence in newspaper reading.

    To provide educators with an economical, effective and exciting teaching vehicle for lessons in writing, history, mathematics, current events, consumer affairs, ecology and scores of other subjects and themes.

    To foster students' personal growth through the use of the newspaper to provide information, entertainment and skills necessary for modern life.

  3. How does the Telegraph Herald use NIE?

    The 2001-2002 school year marks the 23rd year of the NIE program at the TH.

    The TH provides curriculum materials, staff to administer the program, one-half the price of the newspapers and finds Adopt-A-School sponsors to reduce or eliminate costs to teachers.

    We provide free teaching materials that are full of information and newspaper activities on a variety of subjects to teachers who are participating in NIE.
