WHAT IS NIE?
News in Education was created to offer newspapers as an educational tool to area schools.
Our goal is to reinforce a positive and lifetime reading habit in students by engaging
them with current, relevant text - the newspaper.
WHY USE THE eEDITION?
An electronic edition is an exact replica of The Merced Sun-Star. It presents news and
current information in an interactive format familiar to today's students and teachers.
Today's students are environmentally savvy, and recent research has indicated that
today's youth are acutely aware of environmental issues and strongly support "green"
programs. The eEdition is ecologically friendly, saving paper, ink and gasoline.
Young people are digital natives who spend much of their time outside the classroom on
computers and mobile devices. Engage these 21st century learners in current events,
social issues and history by using the new eEdition electronic edition of The Merced Sun-Star.
HOW TO USE THE eEDITION
With no software to download or files to save, daily access to the interactive
edition of The Merced Sun-Star is easy, fun and educational. Each edition of The
Merced Sun-Star is available daily. All you need is a computer with Internet
access - in the classroom, computer lab, library or your home.
