Getting the Four-Page Teacher's Guides From your NIE Coordinator
You can receive a copy of the classroom guide every week from the NIE Coordinator at your local newspaper. Any newspaper carrying USA WEEKEND Magazine will have access to these classroom guides 2 weeks in advance. Just call the NIE coordinator to arrange for delivery.
Download and print the guides directly. All you need to download these printable guides is Acrobat Reader. Guides are available one week in advance. Just click on the date you wish to download.
Monthly Educational Themes
The themes were selected from topics that most middle and high school teachers will have as part of their scheduled curriculum and educational mandates. They are designed to make the guides easy for you to incorporate into your teachings.
The Teacher's Guides will include a lesson each week and at least one activity sheet per month focusing on the monthly theme.
If you have any questions about our NIE program or the materials offered here, please contact your local NIE Coordinator.
