Newspaper in Education

Indiana Bicentennial series

To mark the state’s 200th birthday, newspapers can run a free 15-part series – So you think you know Indiana: Celebrating 200 years of the Hoosier State.

The series is available in half- and quarter-page layouts ready to place on the page, but text and photos are included if papers want to design locally.

Newspapers = Informational Text in Reading Core Standards

The newspaper is a perfect classroom tool for teaching reading core standards. It’s the only textbook that’s updated daily.

Our newspapers serve as the watchdog of government in a democratic society. The First Amendment guarantees freedom of the press and free speech, among other rights.

Teachers play a major role in explaining to students the role of a free press in a democracy. We may not like everything we hear or read, but as Americans we treasure the right to express our opinions.
