College Students Provide Guest Editorials for NIE Week

In NIE News On
- Updated

Newspaper In Education Week is commemorated the first week in March. There are several new resources available to emphasize the importance of young people reading newspapers.

Students in Clyde Bentley’s Editorial Writing Class at University of Missouri have written guest editorials that may be used in your publications. This large selection has been compiled into one document for you to choose one or more you want to publish. To access the file, visit www.mo-nie.com and use download code: nieops.

If you publish one of the editorials and have a minute to drop Clyde an email, you can reach him at bentleycl@missouri.edu.

This year, the American Press Institute (formerly the Newspaper Association of America Foundation) has partnered with the Newseum on materials to create the annual NIE week curriculum.

Each unit contains two lessons for middle- and high-school students, along with extension activities for elementary students. Units are organized as follows:

Newspapers in Your Life
What’s News Where?
The First Rough Draft of History
In the Newsroom
The Fairness Formula
Planning for the Unpredictable
Media Literacy
Where News Comes From
Evaluating the News

All lessons align with Common Core State Standards, use newspapers as supplemental resources and incorporate existing Newseum materials into lesson plans for teachers and worksheets for students.

Download each unit and the standards alignment chart at http://www.americanpressinstitute.org/Curriculum/NIE/NIE-Week.aspx.
