Here’s what educators from across Ohio are saying about NewsDepth:

“NewsDepth is an important piece to our curriculum. It provides us with worldwide current events as well as local news and human interest stories. When I asked the kids in my class what they thought about this program, they said it was a fun way to learn and without it they would not be as informed. We then talked about our education as a whole and decided it was a piece of our educational puzzle!”
Diane Lukens, 4th Grade Teacher
Isham Elementary School, Wadsworth City Schools
Wadsworth, OH

“We live in a small, rural farming area, in Harpersfield, Ohio. Watching NewsDepth, my third graders feel like they know what’s happening outside of their community.”
Bridget Bordeaux, 3rd Grade Teacher
Cork Elementary School, Geneva Area City Schools
Geneva, OH

“NewsDepth provides us experiences that are beyond our classroom."
Tammy Anderson, 4th/5th Grade Teacher
Meadowlawn Intermediate School, Perkins School District
Sandusky, OH

“NewsDepth stimulates a lot of class discussion about the stories presented each week. Many students who do not participate in day to day discussion of the current standards topic will participate in NewsDepth discussions, sharing what they have experienced or seen.”
Tim Petrie, 5th Grade Teacher
St. Mary’s Intermediate School, St. Mary’s City School
St. Mary’s, OH
