Newspaper in Education Manager, Knoxville News-Sentinel
Alice Dollar is Manager of the Knoxville News-Sentinel in
Education Program, an innovative initiative designed to leverage
the educational value of reading the newspaper in the classroom.
Research shows that using the newspaper with students improves
their community awareness, academic skills, current-events
knowledge and citizenship while at the same time helping students
prepare for career opportunities. With over 15 years in education,
Dollar has used her valuable experiences to develop a curriculum
to teach children how to properly interact with animals, with
emphasis on caring for pets. She is co-author of the book,
Introduction to the Newspaper for fourth and fifth
grade students and has received numerous awards.
