How well do you know your U.S. Constitution? Test your I.Q. along with your readers with a new feature that offers 18 questions about our nation's founding document. Drive readers through your newspaper to find the answers on the companion feature that you publish IN THE SAME ISSUE.
Readers young -- and older -- will benefit from a Constitution Day civic lesson on or near Sept. 17. In addition to the Constitution Quiz, MPA has four archived features created in partnership with The Missouri Bar.

Sept. 8 is International Literacy Day, established in 1965 to focus attention on worldwide literacy needs. More than 780 million of the world's adults do not know how to read or write, and more than 94 million children lack access to education.
Missouri Press has joined a national effort by the International Reading Association and NASA to encourage kids to devote an additional 60 seconds a day to literacy activities. MPA has created a feature that promotes using the newspaper to improve literacy skills for children of all ages.
To download the feature, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: literacyday.
The teaching resource, "Using the Newspaper to Meet Langauge Arts Standards" has been updated and is available now for download. Newspapers are encouraged to promote this resource to local teachers. Copy and distribute or upload to your website.
