LATEST NIE NEWSMissouri Newspapers In Education

Reaching young readers is the goal of Newspaper In Education and Missouri newspapers are working within their communities to build programs that create relationships with young people.

Newspaper In Education is a partnership between newspapers and schools in which teachers use classroom sets of newspapers as an educational resource in a variety of age and curriculum settings.

Families become partners by extending the reading and learning experiences to the home -- parents reading with their children, discussing current events and modeling their own reading habits. Organizations contribute through content on topics relating to community, state or national interest. Business enters the partnership by providing sponsorship of the reduced-rate educational newspapers.

Research indicates students who use newspapers in their classroom curriculum increase and improve: reading skills, verbal interactions, student motivation and behavior, achievement scores and awareness of the world and their communities.

Missouri Press Association, through our educational foundation, supports Missouri newspapers in their efforts to create Newspaper In Education programs. We provide in-paper youth features in partnership with many state organizations and agencies, affordable children's serial stories, teacher workshops, curriculum material and staff support and training.

For more information on any of Missouri Press Association's Newspaper In Education programs, contact Dawn Kitchell, MPA State NIE Director at (636) 932-4301. Kitchell has many years of experience creating and managing successful Newspapers In Education programs. She can help individual newspapers launch and sustain great NIE programs.
