Hello NIE Teachers! I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Brianne Costa and I’ll be taking over the Boston Herald NIE program for Julie.
I’ve already spoken with some of you in the past few months, and I look forward to working together to bring the news into your classrooms.
Please call or email me if you have any questions or concerns about the NIE program, and save my contact information!
Attention NIE Teachers– Print newspaper delivery will be suspended for Monday, January 21 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Delivery will resume on Tuesday, January 22. The online Smart Edition will be available during the holiday.
Due to overwhelming requests from schools and accelerating printing costs, beginning in January, free print copies of the Boston Herald will be limited to 20 copies per school. We regret this action and hope you will work with your colleagues to share the papers with other classrooms.
To make up for any inconvenience, we encourage you to try the online Boston Herald Smart Edition which is the exact replica of the daily print paper. We offer the Smart Edition – as many copies as you need – for free. As an added bonus, students are invited to use the Smart Edition at home for homework and family learning activities. The Boston Herald Smart Edition can be viewed on a variety of electronic devices that make it easy to view from home or the classroom.
Visit www.bostonheraldnie.com now to order Smart Edition copies and find activities and tutorials to get everybody started. Or call 617-619-6220 with questions.
