Newspaper in Education

Newspaper in Education is a cooperative effort between schools and newspapers to promote the use of newspapers as an educational resource and to encourage tomorrow's readers.

INF works with multiple organizations to offer curriculum guides to schools across Iowa. These guides provide valuable lesson plans that fit Iowa schools’ core curriculum requirements and incorporate newspapers and newspaper websites into classroom learning.

INF recently worked with the Elevate Iowa program to provide curriculum materials covering advanced manufacturing to elementary and secondary schools statewide thorough the Elevate Your Future initiative.

INF has facilitated the production and distribution of NIE curriculum guides covering science, character, health and wellness, and financial literacy.
