Lesson Plans

You read the newspaper to find out the news of the day. But there’s much more you can do with the St. Louis Post Dispatch ePost or Print Edition in your classroom. Thumb through the following subjects to find ideas on how to use stories in the main section, box scores in the sports section, and even the comic strips in lessons to help boost your students’ literacy and skills! 
We want to keep these lists growing, so send your newspaper-related lesson ideas to nie@post-dispatch.com with “Lesson plans” in the subject line to share with other teachers! Look for fun, interactive lessons; available soon with your NIE online registration. 

Join Marci and her classmates as they take trip to the "World's Largest and Most Magnificent Recycling Plant." 
This engaging 10-chapter story will show your students how and why we ALL need to do our part in taking care of the environment. 
The 2015 installment of this series is available at Marci's Recycling Challenge....
