Newspaper in Education program

Knowledge is power!

Linking students with the world.

The Spokesman-Review’s Newspaper in Education (NIE)program is committed to promoting and expanding readership among area youth throughout Washington & Idaho by providing FREE access to our digital replica newspaper for teachers to use in their classroom as an educational tool.

Participation is open to any educator within Spokane/Kootenai County (and beyond!). At the end of the school year, The Spokesman-Review will require a confirmation of participation. We will contact you via email and simply ask that you respond & return the signed affidavit to us for our records.

Efficient. Registration is simple and takes mere minutes to complete! The Spokesman-Review will do all necessary set up on behalf of your classroom and will provide an easy to remember username & password that can be shared with your students.

Easy-to-Use. The e-Edition is an exact replica of the print edition but with these added features:

  • Keyword Search
  • Hear the paper read aloud with text to speech
  • Access 1 year of archived newspapers
  • E-notify (sends you an email when a specific word/phrase is in the daily newspaper)
  • Adjustable text
  • Print, save, and email articles, coupons, and ads
  • Compatible with an interactive whiteboard, projector, or computer

Engaging. Access to the e-Edition can be made from any device at your school with an internet connection. In addition, students and teachers are encouraged to use the e-Edition at home by accessing it from a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. It’s that e-asy!
