Newspapers In Education

Newspapers in Education


The Skagit Valley Herald Newspaper in Education (NIE) program is a resource for teachers, students, and parents interested in learning about newspapers and ways they can be used as a teaching text.

The newspaper can be an excellent tool for capturing and holding student interest and can be used in teaching any subject to almost any grade level.

Classroom newspaper use increases test scores! This is because students who use the newspaper as a source of informational text are also reading about things that capture their interest. This engagement is reflected in students’ ability to comprehend and make use of what they are reading.
