DEVELOPING CRITICAL READING POWER THROUGH NEWSPAPER READING.
SAILER, CARL
A METHOD OF DEVELOPING CRITICAL READING POWER BY ANALYZING ADVERTISEMENTS, CARTOONS, EDITORIALS, AND CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES FOUND IN NEWSPAPERS IS DESCRIBED. SPECIFIC EXAMPLES OF TEACHING PROCEDURES ARE GIVEN. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT A WIDE RANGE OF NEWSPAPERS BE USED SO THAT THE DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS EXPRESSED IN COLUMNS, EDITORIALS, AND POLITICAL NEWS AND THE UNWARRANTED EDITORIALIZING IN STRAIGHT NEWS STORIES CAN BE DETECTED. CRITICAL READING IS CONSIDERED A THREE-LEVEL PROCESS--COMPREHENSION, INTERPRETATION, AND EVALUATION. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT NOT ALL NEWSPAPER ARTICLES ARE SUITABLE FOR DEVELOPING CRITICAL READING POWER AND THAT THE NEWSPAPER IS NOT GOOD MATERIAL FOR REMEDIAL READING. (RH)
