What  is NiE? 

 
Newspapers in Education is about expanding awareness through reading the local newspaper. NiE hopes to initiate discussion on important current affairs that appear in the news and curriculum linked topics. 
 
The Newspapers in Education program consists of educational pages published weekly through-out the school year in APN’s Daily papers. The pages target the middle school and can be used to launch children into research and investigation. 
 
The news can be used to challenge thoughts and opinions, extend literacy capabilities and provide students with life skills. The content of the NiE pages is designed to encourage students and readers to investigate and research additional information through multi-media channels. The program also supplies resources for in classroom activities that support the NiE pages.
