NIE program puts the Enquirer into classrooms

Hartselle Junior High School students in Chuck Smith's social studies class look forward to using the Hartselle Enquirer each week to study current events. Smith said the free papers his class receives through the Newspapers in Education (NIE) program have been particularly helpful in studying local politics this election year.
"My students seem to look forward to studying current events more than anything each week," Smith said. "I give each student a Hartselle Enquirer and a worksheet to help organize their thoughts on particular articles of interest. After 15 minutes of reading and studying the newspapers, the class discusses what they have read and its relevance to what we are studying. We are so thankful for the opportunity to receive our local newspaper and use it in the classroom."
Smith also archives one copy of each week's Hartselle Enquirer in the school's library as reference material. Sherry Echols' social studies class also incorporates the NIE newspapers into her curriculum.
"We appreciate the Hartselle Enquirer for participating in the NIE program, and the local businesses who support it," Counselor Vicki Jeffreys said. "It's so important for our kids to know what's going on in the world, and especially in their own community."
