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. For more information on NYNPA's award-winning NIE program, please click here.
