  • Using the News

    Getting students interested in what they are learning has always been an important concern for educators. Teachers want students to be excited about what they are learning so they'll actively participate in classroom activities.

    Teachers in the Campbellsville and Taylor County area help accomplish this goal by using newspapers in the classroom. Teachers can use newspapers in all subject areas from English and arts and humanities to family and consumer sciences.
