The New York Times Newspaper In Education (N.I.E.) program is the oldest of its kind in the U.S. It brings newspapers (at discounted prices) into U.S. classrooms where they are used as educational resources in every content area.

books Participating in The New York Times Newspaper In Education Programs can
