New (teacher guide) Critical Thinking, Core Curriculum and Using Print and Digital Newspapers
In support of Newspaper In Education Week (celebrated annually during the first full school week of March), the Newspaper of America Assn. Foundation has created a teacher's guide for in school use. The teacher’s guide, which is aligned with national learning standards, features a five-subject approach that takes advantage of the wide range of topics covered by newspapers. Topics include financial literacy, nutrition, the environment, character education and information technology. Lessons can be taught individually or as a unit.
