Newspapers In Education (NIE) is a nationwide effort begun by the National Newspaper Association to promote literacy throughout our schools.
It allows teachers to use newspapers to stir the interest of today's youth by having their students read and study them.
By creating an avenue of interest in the newspaper genre, students are encouraged to be creative, form opinions, and strengthen their skills in all subject areas. NIE also allows the opportunity for everyone in the community, from local businesses to charities and other such organizations, to participate in strengthening literacy levels in local schools.
The Wilson County News' NIE program provides newspapers to classrooms in and around Wilson County. The NIE coordinator provides support to NIE teachers in the form of classroom visits, additional resources, and weekly emails.
Wilson, the life-size red apple, is the Wilson County News' NIE mascot who visits classrooms and makes appearances at community events, promoting literacy and spreading cheer.
"The 411" is the Wilson County News' trendy tab section for today's youth. It highlights local youth in feature stories and news briefs and contains fun topics and activities for youth.
Newspaper Fun is published every week in "The 411," providing fun kid content, as well as specific subject content useful for teachers.
"The Bandanna Gang" comic strip, Sudoku, and serial stories are common features that can also be found in "The 411." If you are interested in supporting the NIE program, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 830-216-4519.
