News Media Literacy/Newspapers in Education
Newspapers in Education (NIE) is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teaching materials are supplemented with the use of the local newspaper. The habit of reading a newspaper provides the necessary practice to build reading and writing skills and develop an interest in the welfare of one's community--valuable skills and attitudes to carry students through life. Increaingly, News Media Literacy is the focus of our educational efforts with students K-16, their educators and the general public. For more information on NYNPA's award-winning programs and available presentations contact Mary Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or browse our downloadable resources here.
Public Notice Promotional Ads
Some officials want to move notices from
newspapers to government-run websites,
where they may not be easily found. This is like putting the fox in
charge of the hen house. Download and run News Media Alliance's public notice ads supporting keeping public notices in print newspapers. There are three ad designs available below in full- and quarter-page sizes. Both PDF and EPS file formats are provided. The ads can be customized with your newspaper’s logo. Visit newsmediaalliance.org to download these promotional ads.
