Message to community:
The Dayton Daily News, Springfield News-Sun and the Journal-News ePapers are available, at no cost to teachers who want to use the ePaper in their classroom. We ask that you simply register the teacher’s name, teachers email address, the name of the school and number of electronic copies the teacher needs for each class – total student count. After registering, the teacher has daily access to the ePaper for classroom conversations and can receive the weekly Newspaper in Education (NIE) newsletter – complete with current events, trivia, games, puzzles and other classroom curriculum ideas to engage students.
NIE provides teacher’s with access to your local newspaper during the school year, and in turn, teachers can share the newspaper with students, exposing them to what is happening in their local community, nation, and around the world. Students in schools with NIE programs score higher on standardized tests. Furthermore, today’s students who read the newspaper are tomorrow’s literate, informed, and productive citizens. They are more likely to vote, be civically engaged as adults, and be better-educated consumers.
Cox First Media values your commitment of educating our youths for tomorrow.
