About NIE

NIE is a not-for-profit literacy program provided free to schools. Nie is a unique way for area schools, businesses and Grand Forks Herald to work together in a partnership that benefits all of us now and in the future. The Newspaper as a living textbook helps promote literacy and educates students on the world we live in.

The Grand Forks Herald NIE literacy program is designed to help teachers use newspapers in the classroom in creative ways. Through the use of daily news, editorials, features and even advertising, students at all grade levels can learn math and cost comparison skills, geography and meteorology, history, and current events and how they shape our world, all while improving reading and comprehension skills.
