IRA Project: Newspaper in Education

The Guam Council purchased newspapers, which was delivered for sixteen weeks, went to two public schools. Juan M. Guerrero Elementary School and Simon Sanchez High School were awarded the newspapers because of their reading efforts in the council’s Read-A-Thon 2005: “Paws for Reading” literacy project. Both schools had the highest read-hours in their division.

Along with the newspapers, the curricula booklets assist and guide teachers in using the newspapers as an educational tool. The newspaper becomes a current resource and enhances learning.
