Resources for Teachers and Students
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution serves as an exceptional supplement to textbooks, which can no longer keep up with our rapidly changing world. Today's technology allows teachers and students to receive the daily newspaper from anywhere there is an internet connection. It is the AJC's Newspapers In Education Department's intent to supply teachers with electronic newspapers and other educational resources all conveniently online and at no cost! Providing schools with up-to-date supplement information is an essential part of the Newspapers In Education program. Studies show that using newspapers on a regular basis in classrooms improves the reading habits and interest of students. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is proud to work with our educators who use the newspaper as an instructional tool to promote literacy.

To help reconnect today's children to the outdoors, National Wildlife Federation assists schools in developing outdoor classrooms called Schoolyard Habitats®, where educators and students learn how to attract and support local wildlife.
These wildlife habitats become places where students not only learn about wildlife species and ecosystems, but also outdoor classrooms where they hone their academic skills and nurture their innate curiosity and creativity.
