    • What is NIE?
      • NIE, is an international program begun in 1955 to advance the use of newspapers in schools.
      • The main purpose of the program:-
      • to improve reading, spelling and writing abilities.
      • The N.I.E. program offers a win-win situation.
      • Teachers enhance their curriculum with an innovative and successful teaching method.
      • excited, motivated students learn valuable skills by using the newspaper.
    • Why NIE?
      • Studies show that using newspapers in the classroom helps students increase their vocabulary, comprehension and critical thinking.
      • Newspapers help students establish lifelong reading habits, develop math skills and even score higher on tests.
      • Today's better informed students grow up to be tomorrow's better informed adults.
    • Who is involved?
      • Teachers use the newspapers as textbooks and supplements in areas such as reading, writing, math, science, history, economics, language arts, special education, English as a second language and more. The newspaper can be incorporated into nearly any classroom subject and grade level from kindergarten to adult education. Newspapers are considered the most up-to-date, inexpensive textbook available to students. The skills gained from regular newspaper exposure make each student a better learner, a better problem-solver, and a better leader.
    • Reading Tips
      • Read aloud.
      • Allow for discussion before, during and after each read-aloud period.
      • Don’t "test" children on what you’ve read, but use the opportunity to get their opinions and to share your own.
      • Read the sections that interest you both: the comics, movie reviews, the Food Section, classified ads.
      • Ask questions:
        • What do you think happened next?
        • How do you think the person in the article felt?
        • How does this picture make you feel?
        • What would you have done?
    • Guidelines for the use of Newspaper in Education followed by our school
      • Five minutes should be devoted for discussion of the headlines/ news items everyday in the class by the teachers.
      • It can be used for honing the comprehension skills of the students and for enhancing their word power.
      • Any interesting information can be put up on the display board. Maintain a scrap book on a topic for the month.
      • If any NIE activity is done, the students should keep a record of the same in the respective notebook.
      • Every Friday the newspaper to be returned to the library.
      • Used newspaper can/ to be made into paper bags.
    • Conclusion
      • Newspapers are a useful tool in the ELT classroom for improving reading skills and enhancing students' knowledge of current affairs. There is a danger of putting students off reading newspapers if articles are used in the same way as course books, with tedious comprehension activities. If used in a more inspiring way, newspapers can help students to develop not only reading skills but also writing, grammar, vocabulary and speaking skills
