This year, the American Press Institute (formerly the Newspaper Association of America Foundation) has partnered with the Newseum on the annual curriculum. API has been creating Newspaper In Education Week curriculum for more than 25 years.
Each unit contains two lessons for middle- and high-school students, along with extension activities for elementary students. Units are organized as follows:
Newspapers in Your Life
What’s News Where?
The First Rough Draft of History
In the Newsroom
The Fairness Formula
Planning for the Unpredictable
Where News Comes From
Evaluating the News
All lessons align with Common Core State Standards, use newspapers as supplemental resources and incorporate existing Newseum materials into lesson plans for teachers and worksheets for students.
