Newspapers in Education (N.I.E.) is a nationwide program to promote and increase our children's literacy by using the newspaper as a teaching tool. Championed by the Beatrice Daily Sun, N.I.E. is a unique way for schools, businesses and the local newspaper to work together in a partnership that benefits all of us - now and in the future.
Through the use of daily news, editorials, features, the USA Weekend magazine, and even advertising, students at all grade levels can learn math and cost comparison skills, geography and meteorology, history, and current events and how they shape our world, all while improving reading and comprehension skills. In summary, the N.I.E. program helps motivate and teach students with a textbook as fresh as each day's news.
Dozens of local teachers have begun using the Beatrice Daily Sun as an effective and timely addition to their curriculum, and their need for newspapers has never been greater. If you are stopping your newspaper while going on vacation, we ask that you donate your papers to our N.I.E. Partners Program. With your help we can meet the increasing educational and material needs of all our children.
