Newspaper In Education, or NIE, simply means using the daily newspaper for teaching and "real-life" learning.  Used in a classroom or other educational setting, NIE is the act or method of teaching and/or learning by using the daily newspaper.   The "living-textbook"  (the newspaper) is a daily source of news and information.  Organized NIE programs exist in most newspaper companies and is usually called an "NIE Department" or "Educational Services Department".   Most organized programs have curriculum materials and teaching aids for students and teachers to use.  The materials vary from K-12+  and focus on all subject areas.  Call your local newspaper company to see if they have an NIE program!     If they do not, contact CJHatcher & Associates, Inc.
