Schools use newspapers in classroom
HATLEY – For several years, the Monroe Journal has provided newspapers to area schools to help educate young minds.
Hatley School is one of the schools that uses newspapers in its classrooms.
“I find the newspapers to be very beneficial in my English classes. We definitely appreciate the people who help provide these newspapers for our classrooms,” said eighth grade English teacher Debbie Tubb.
Tubb said she uses the newspaper for reading exercises and also to find parts of speech.
Sheila Pearson, who teaches 12th grade English and also broadcast journalism, uses the newspapers in her classroom, as well.
“I have the students search the newspaper for certain things, find articles and bylines, and on certain articles they have to write summaries. This also gets the students reading the newspapers,” Pearson said.
Anyone who would like to support the newspapers in education can contact the Monroe Journal at 256-5647. Teachers who have story ideas for the NIE can contact Ray Van Dusen at email@example.com.
