Default NIE Week 2009 from NAA

Newspapers Now:
Developing Comprehension and Research Skills With the Newspaper

Newspaper In Education Week 2009, March 2-6, reinforces a positive and relevant lifetime reading habit in students by engaging them with an authentic text – the newspaper.

This year's theme is "Newspapers Now." The NAA Foundation has created a teacher's guide and in-paper ads for NIE Week. Everything can be downloaded right here, right now, free of charge.

The newspaper has always been, and remains today, an important resource in people’s lives. While the delivery format now includes electronic editions, the content continues to be relevant to people’s needs and interests whether it is in print or online.

“Newspapers Now” extends the “connections” idea of the 2008 NIE Week theme. The goal is for students to realize that newspapers can have an impact on their lives today. While activities address comprehension and research skills, the focus is on the value of newspaper content.

The 53-page guide features 15 lesson plans, each with a student activity sheet. Also included in the guide are 15 elementary-level pages for younger students. They parallel the lesson plans and activities in the guide.
