Resources to Help Students Succeed!
For the 2004-2005 school year, over 600 teachers have
requested almost 300,000 sponsored newspapers for their students.
On any given school day, the Times-Call delivers
between 1,500 and 3,000 newspapers to local classrooms to support
teaching efforts in St.Vrain, Boulder, and Thompson Valley school
attendance areas. Demand is even greater this year.
To help students improve reading, writing, and math,
the Daily Times-Call, in partnership with sponsors, provides newspapers
teachers at no charge.
Newspapers help classroom lessons come alive, working well for learners
of all kinds and levels, and appealing to both reluctant and eager
readers. Students go beyond current events, using newspaper stories,
photos, columns, ads, comics, graphs, and charts to apply and reinforce
skills and expand knowledge in all subject areas.
Newspapers work as up-to-date textbooks. They also encourage students
to become involved in their community and take pride in responsible
Participating teachers receive newspapers to be used in the classroom
according to their schedules. Some use them once a week, others
use them daily. These educators may also receive a variety of accompanying
guides linked with the required standards and proficiencies along
with workshops to boost learning and teaching effectiveness.
A Partnership that Benefits Everyone!
