This year, the Cortland Standard Newspapers in Education program presents the Famous New Yorker series, starting in October! Designed for school children in grades 4 through 8, the series offers students a look at native sons and daughters who contributed to our state, nation, and world.
Each 500-word profile is accompanied by a photo or artwork of the person, a state locator map, and a teacher’s guide. This year’s 13 installments include Sammy Davis Jr. – entertainer, Ross Marvin – explorer, Nancy Reagan – actress and First Lady, Emma Lazarus – poet, and many more.
Newspapers and teacher’s guides are free for classroom use.
To order papers for your classroom, call Mike Anderson at (607) 756-5665 ext. 140, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
