Importance of NIE

A Dozen Good Reasons

1. It's an adult medium. No seventh grader who can't read likes to be seen carrying around The Little Red Wagon, but he's proud to be seen reading the newspaper.

2. It deals in reality, in what is happening here and now. Motivation for reading and for discussion is built-in.

3. It bridges the gap between the classroom and the "real" world outside.

4. It contains history as it happens, reported as completely and as objectively as humanly possible.

5. It contains something for every student ... the comics, the editorials, the sports, real math problems, and science as it happens.

6. It contains practical vocabulary; the words students will use over and over throughout their lives.

7. It can be marked, cut, pasted, colored etc. -- activities important to students who learn by doing and by seeing.

8. It contains news stories as the models for clear, concise, simple writing.

9. It is the perfect model for teaching students to write for a purpose and for a particular audience.

10. It is the only up-to-date social studies text there is.

11. It is the only text the majority of children will continue to read throughout their lives.

12. It is an influential and integral part of a free society.

Literacy is one of the most important determiners of a child's success later in life and a few of our local companies have stepped up to the challenge of stamping out illiteracy in our community.

These companies and organizations have recognized the importance of literacy to our community's welfare and are striving to do their part.

Our literacy leaders sponsor between 6 and 25 classrooms with weekly newspapers for each student. By bringing the real world into the classroom with the newspaper they hope to inspire our students in the importance of reading and change their futures for the better.
