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

Media Literacy

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.
