How to Participate:

The Daily Post-Athenian is proud to offer the Newspapers in Education (NIE) program to you and your students. Learning from the real world has a magnetic appeal for students. That is one reason why newspapers are the perfect teaching tools. In addition, research shows that using a newspaper in the curriculum improves student skills, increases knowledge, and encourages a positive attitude toward learning. It also helps students become informed and involved citizens while developing a lifelong reading habit.

To participate you will need to contact our NIE Coordinator, Pat Helms, by email at pat.helms@dailypostathenian.com or by phone at 423-252-1240. She can answer any questions you may have and set up a time for you to complete our NIE Class. Our NIE Class will help you get the most out of the newspaper in your classroom.
