A UNIT FOR THE CLASSROOM TEACHER--THE NEWSPAPER, A LIVING AND DYNAMIC TEXTBOOK. (TITLE SUPPLIED)
FASAN, WALTER R.; AND OTHERS
IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT TO FIND INTERESTING MATERIAL FOR REMEDIAL READING PROGRAMS. STUDENTS OVER 14 YEARS OF AGE, BUT STILL IN GRAMMAR SCHOOL, FOUND NEWSPAPERS TO CONTAIN INTERESTING AND PRACTICAL MATERIAL. BECAUSE OF THE GREAT VARIETY OF ARTICLES CONTAINED THEREIN, NEWSPAPERS ARE RELEVANT TO EVERY AREA OF THE ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM. THEY CAN BE USED FOR TEACHING READING TECHNIQUES, VOCABULARY BUILDING AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM. ARTICLES ARE LIKEWISE RELEVANT TO INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IN SOCIAL STUDIES, GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, ARITHMETIC, SCIENCE, AND GUIDANCE. INFORMATION IS GIVEN CONCERNING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEWSPAPER PROGRAM IN AN ELEMENTARY CLASS OF 14 TO 16 YEAR OLD PUPILS IN THE STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS SCHOOL IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. MANY SUGGESTIONS TO THE TEACHER ARE MADE CONCERNING THE USES OF THE NEWSPAPER AS SUPPLEMENTARY CURRICULUM. (INCLUDED IS A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF BOOKS OR BOOKLETS ON TEACHING ABOUT OR THROUGH THE NEWSPAPER.)
