CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS
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.

TOURS OF THE TIMES-NEWS
Let your students see how their daily newspaper is published every day. Bring them for a tour where they’ll get to meet some of our reporters and photographers, see how ads are made, and see the gigantic printing press and one-ton rolls of newspaper print! Tours are available for groups of 30 or fewer Monday-Friday. Call 336/506-3071 to schedule your class tour.
