Logo-Zeitung-in-der-Schule“Zeitung in der Schule (ZIS)” places newspapers in schools, for educational purposes. The manifold benefits of reading newspapers are introduced in media educational projects, in learning and instruction, in order to familiarise children with the use of newspapers as sources of information and entertainment, and as tools for acquiring media literacy. In a step-by-step approach, children are taught to access newspapers, to distinguish reports from commentaries, to integrate and analyse graphic information sources (diagrams, photos etc.). Since 1995, ZIS has collaborated with all of the commercial daily and weekly newspapers and magazines to promote a journalistic type of reading promotion n Austria.
