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!
