There are baseball heroes -- and then there are legends

December 18, 2014

Dizzy Dean stands among the legendary players who have left their mark on America's game. History remembers Dizzy not only for his prowess on the pitcher's mound, but also for his character off of it.

Your newspaper can share the story of Dizzy and the rest of "The Gashouse Gang" -- the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals baseball team -- in a new serialized story from Missouri Press Foundation and author Carolyn Mueller.

"The Gashouse Gang" is this year's Reading Across Missouri project, an endeavor to have young readers across the state inside their community newspapers reading and learning in 2015. This is the 10th year for the project.

The story is available now to Missouri newspapers to begin publishing in January. To access the package, which includes the Rules for Publication, promotional ad, teacher guide and 12 chapter features, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: readmo15.

 
 

Commemorate 25th Anniversary of Fall of the Berlin Wall

November 3, 2014

On Nov. 9, the world will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in  1989. Missouri Press has created Newspaper In Education features that tell the story of the Berlin Wall.

In our two-part series, Part I describes the construction of the Wall - why it was built and how it impacted Berlin. Part II celebrates the Wall's fall and what that meant to Berliners, Germans and the world. We've also combined all the information into one large feature.

These features are available at no cost and may be downloaded at www.mo-nie.com using download code: wall89.
