Bangor Daily News Partnership

During our 2008-2010 Maine Community Heritage Project program years, we were fortunate to have partnered with the Bangor Daily News on the Newspapers in Education program. The program, “provided by newspapers to educational institutions worldwide, encourages using the newspaper in the classroom as a supplemental teaching tool to help students develop essential academic and life skills.”

In the 2008-2009 MCHP year, BDN featured four MCHP communities in its readership area (Islesboro, Hampden, Lubec, Presque Isle) on its full-page, full-color NIE spreads. The stories and images on the pages captured both the local history being explored by the MCHP teams and the processes students went through to digitize items, research topics, and generally do good history. See Islesboro’s page as a sample. (Scroll down to the link on the right-hand side that says “Bangor Daily News Article.”)

We are pleased that BDN again featured four MCHP communities during the 2009-2010 MCHP year–Bangor, Blue Hill, Guilford, and Lincoln. Students helped design page content and layout the pages with BDN staff. Features appeared in the spring and PDFs are provided below.

Meanwhile, BDN also featured monthly “History Hunters” photos from MCHP communities, both past and present, all of which revealed something fascinating about the community in question.
