Teachers, give your students the world at their fingertips, at no cost to you!

Winner of 20 Pulitzer Prizes, the Miami Herald Media Company (MHMC) provides the best journalism in South Florida. MHMC's NewsMedia in Education (NIE) program strives to promote literacy through readership, at no cost to participating classroom teachers.

Today's students want immediate news and entertainment in a digitized format using the latest software, and that's what NIE offers, with complete access to the Miami Herald Digital Newspaper and other resources. For Spanish lessons, teachers turn to the award-winning el Nuevo Herald - one of our nation's premier Spanish-language newspapers.

NIE provides subject-specific lesson plans for every grade level that are compatible with the Florida Standards.
