Thank you for your interest in the Quad-City Times/Muscatine Journal Newspapers in Education program. My name is Jennifer Praet and I am the NIE coordinator for the Quad-City Times/Muscatine Journal.

SERVICE ISSUES

Service is important to us here at NIE.  Please contact me with any questions, inquires or subscription questions. I also welcome suggestions and input on the program.

REQUEST A TEACHER TRAINING, CLASSROOM VISIT OR SCHEDULE A TOUR

TEACHER TRAINING

Our coordinator is available to run workshops during faculty meetings and in-service days with school staff who are looking for new ideas on how to use the newspaper as a learning tool, how to incorporate the news into your curriculum and utilize the abundance of resources available to our participating schools.  There are many topics to choose from general tips and lessons on how to incorporate the newspaper into your curriculum to grade and subject specific lessons.

CLASSROOM VISIT

Armed with engaging newspaper activities, our coordinator can conduct a fun and interactive activity with your class.  All our curriculum is aligned with core-curriculum standards and most allows for both hands on and smart board interactivity.  As with the teacher training, workshops can range from the general to the specific and customized to your classroom needs.

These services are FREE for current NIE participating schools!!!!

SCHEDULE A TOUR

Tours of our Quad-City Times offices and production facility are offered by appointment only Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.  Most tours take approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.  Tour schedule is based on availability.  Most tours will include both the newspaper offices and production facility, however due to safety regulations, we can not allow children under the age of 10 in our production area so tours for children under 10 will only include our newspaper offices.   

Please contact me to schedule a teacher workshop, classroom visit or tour.  With the help of teachers, parents, and students we can make the education experience for Quad City Area students exceptional!
