Newspapers in Education (NIE) is an exciting program that engages students in learning by providing them with access to The Killeen Daily Herald. NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teaching materials are supplemented with the local newspaper.
At no cost to participating teachers, The Killeen Daily Herald’s NIE program provides copies of the print edition, access to KDHNews eEdition, 24/7, plus the opportunity for students to enter rewarding contests.
NIE allows students, from kindergarten through 12th grade, to learn core academic skills as well as make the connection between the classroom learning environment and real-life applications.
Thank you to the many individuals, corporate partners and organizations for supporting our program and making NIE possible.
"My students and I greatly appreciate the donations that make it possible for us to receive the Killeen Daily Herald each week. I receive the Sunday newspaper because as a math teacher, I can use the sales ads to give my lessons a real world application. I use them to teach fractions, decimals, percents. I even used real estate ads to teach my students about interest! The students in my activity period thoroughly enjoy the newspapers as well. We use them to read on DEAR Day (Drop Everything And Read). Activity period is a short period before lunch, so instead of only reading bits of a novel at a time, we read newspaper articles from the Killeen Daily Herald. Students can choose articles that interest them, and we share out at the end of the period. We use the newspaper on other days to learn about current events, sports, or even to create posters. It is so important for students at the middle school level to learn about the world outside of school. Your newspaper serves as that window for my students! Thanks again."

"I am so grateful for the weekly KDH newspapers my class receives each week. They have been a valuable teaching tool and resource for my students. Since Iduma Elementary is an IB school, our students have to learn and take action in our Exhibition project this year. Each week, my students research the action others have taken and the impact of these actions on our community, nation, and world by reading the articles in the newspaper. I have also used the newspaper for math and science lessons. Thank you so much for sponsoring us with the Killeen Daily Herald. The 5th Graders in Mrs. K. Davis' class truly appreciate it!"
