Call to arrange a classroom newspaper presentation by our NIE Director, Michele Terry. Our presentation covers all aspects of publishing a daily newspaper, including how a newspaper is organized, newspaper terminology, fun and interesting facts about the Times-News, and a hands-on NIE activity or craft. It’s the perfect introduction to the newspaper for your students and can be adapted for all grade levels. We also have a 13-minute “video tour” of a newspaper for upper elementary, middle and high school students.
