Dear Editor, I would like to publicly thank the Pliant Corporation for sponsoring my class as part of the Newspapers in Education program. The NIE provides newspapers and activities to be used in the classroom through corporate and individual sponsorship. The newspaper is a vital resource in the social studies classroom in terms of current events - locally, nationally and globally. Sixth-graders do not always read the newspaper at home or watch the news, therefore having the paper available in the classroom allows them access to information to which they might not otherwise be exposed.
