Newspapers In Education in the Classroom - is a cooperative effort between schools and newspapers to promote the use of newspapers as an educational resource.
From a teacher's viewpoint, the newspaper can be an important motivator for their students. Newspapers contain information on current world, international, national and local events. Most of these happenings have a direct effect on all our lives. Students know this. They check the newspaper to find out what is going on in their neighborhoods.
Even students who see themselves as subpar readers still read the comics, entertainment page and sports section. It is often easy to induce them to extend their reading to news, editorials and syndicated columnists, as well.
