Newspapers are used as teaching tools in Kentucky classrooms
A Kentucky elementary-school teacher uses newspapers to teach her students math, literacy and current events. Teacher Ruthie Miller says her students "buy" advertised items in the paper to learn math, write stories based on news photos and point out articles that are relevant to them. Miller receives the newspaper as part of the Newspapers in Education program, which distributes close to 10,000 papers to area classrooms each week to use as a teaching tool.
