  • 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.

  • Grace Notes

    Before the worship service started we had eaten dinner together, me with my tape recorder and notebook by my side.

    I don't normally go to church on Wednesday nights, but I had come to New Beginnings Fellowship in Hernando, Fla., for a Religion Page feature story and to take notes about their worship.

    As the people entered the sanctuary, some grabbed musical instruments from a cardboard box in the back of the room - maracas and wooden sticks, cymbals and tambourines. During the first song, people used the instruments, making their own music.
