Resources for North Carolina teachers and students

Newspaper in Education at the Rocky Mount Telegram, The Daily Advance and the Daily Reflector are now offering our eEdition as well as our print product. You can choose one or both!

We are making the eEdition available not only to take advantage of new technology, but also to be good stewards of our NIE donations. The money we raise for NIE can go a lot farther by purchasing eEditions for participating classrooms, which means we will be able to expand the program to even more teachers.

When ordering newspapers or the eEdition for your classroom, be sure and click on the newspaper in your school's area. Thank you for using the Newspaper in Education program in your classroom!

Thinking about how you think can become confusing, making the brain one of the most complicated organs to study. NBC Learn’s eight-part video series on the brain is divided into easily-understood concepts, which together create a broader view of how versatile and mysterious the human brain can be.
