What is NIE?
Newspapers In Education (NIE) is an exciting interactive program that engages students in learning by providing teachers access to the Austin American-Statesman for use in their classroom. The NIE program is designed to make reading newspapers a fun and beneficial learning experience.
NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teacher materials are supplemented with the use of the local newspaper. This is accomplished everyday by providing a “living textbook” in a format that is less intimidating and more appealing to students.
