Resources for Teachers and Students

Welcome Teachers

Sign up today for free access to the digital edition of the Peninsula Clarion. Obtain access to our weekly lesson modules for an interactive geography quiz, watch a science video, listen to an audio webcast, or use the discussion prompts to stimulate a classroom discussion on important news events.

Students can work independently with the digital edition in classrooms, computer labs, or from their home computers.

You can project the digital edition using a projector or digital white board so the whole class can explore, read articles you select along with you, take a quiz, or spark a lively discussion.
