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.
"Thank you for buying the newspapers for our class. We read the mini page to learn many things like punctuation, money, space, fire safety, presidents and citizens. We love the newspapers. We read, write and report the articles so we can be better speakers. It is coming from your heart. I like the newspaper because of the movie and T.V. characters. You are nice. You care about others before you. My favorite part was the mini page and the activities and the articles. I wish I grow up to be like you. You rock. Sincerely, Amira"
"In history class, we use the newspapers to relate real life to our history studies. We use the papers to prove things in our system of government. We prove individual freedoms that our government says we have. When we find things that relate to the things we study, we cut them out and are able to discuss such things in class from year to year. We really enjoy being able to receive the papers. Students always remember the activities we do with them. Thank you very much for allowing us to receive them each week."
