Request a Teacher Training Workshop or School Visit

If you are interested in discovering new ways to supplement the materials you use in the classroom with the daily newspaper, our Youth Outreach Specialist can come to your school and show you how to incorporate the news into your curriculum. Armed with engaging e-newspaper activities to do with your students, she can conduct an activity with your class, making it fun and engaging for them and easy for you to bring real-world learning into your classroom.

The Outreach Specialist is also available to run workshops during faculty meetings and in-service days with your peers and staff who are also looking for new ideas on how to use the newspaper as a learning tool. Please send us an e-mail at or give us a call at 206/652-6290. Once we have received your request, we will confirm the date, time, place and activity with you. Your request will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.

These services are FREE for current Newspapers In Education (NIE) subscribers.

Schedule a Tour

Follow a newspaper from start to finish ... and get your copy hot off the press. See how robots move giant paper rolls, how the press is "prepped" for printing and much more. Tours of our North Creek production facility in Bothell are offered by appointment only.

North Creek tours take approximately one hour and our scheduling fluctuates according to the season. Tour scheduling is also based on production schedules, and when the presses are running. We can accommodate tours of up to 35 people at a time. For safety reasons, the minimum age is eight.

North Creek Facility is located at:
