Yuma Sun Newspapes in EducationUpcoming Speakers
Please join us as Vince Rivera shares information sponsorship opportunities in support of Yuma Sun's Newspapers in Education program.
Newspapers In Education is a program where classrooms base their choice of subject curriculum using the newspapers we have sponsored. Newspaper use in the classroom increases student awareness about their community and world. Studies show NIE students can receive better achievement scores in social studies, language arts and mathematics.
The lessons range from Stop Bullying to using the car ads for budgets in math, as well social studies using local and world events. Last year over 60 local classrooms were sponsored by local business as well from subscribers donating their vacation newspapers and funds when they leave to the program.
Sponsorship funding will allow expansion of the Newspapers In Education program to additional students and classrooms who have signed up by contacting Vince or you can visit the website www.nieinyuma.com to learn more.
