The Boston Globe News in Education (NIE) program is offering access to educational resources free of charge to Maine teachers and their students in grades K-12.
Registration to The Boston Globe classroom is required and can be accessed here.
Once registered, teachers and their students will have access to the following digital products:
- The Boston Globe e-paper looks just like an electronic replica of the print newspaper but with interactive features. Using the Boston Globe e-paper, students can listen to individual articles or have them translated into 17 languages.
- BostonGlobe.com is the digital version of The Boston Globe. Students can search for keywords on BostonGlobe.com and save articles to their own personal accounts.
- Boston.com offers 24-hour breaking news and sports coverage from The Boston Globe along with streaming audio and video from RadioBDC, the Globe’s alternative rock Internet radio station.
- Boston Globe Archive contains the full text of Globe articles from 1872 to the present.
In addition to their NIE subscriptions, teachers will have full access to Boston Globe NIE Common Core lesson plans, a weekly Boston Globe news quiz and newsletter, daily science webcasts, a Words in the News vocabulary quiz generated by grade level, a caption contest for editorial cartoons and much more.
