Teaching With Newspapers: The Living Curriculum.
Rhoades, Lynn; Rhoades, George
Daily newspapers may be used to broaden and enrich the curriculum in both elementary and secondary schools in a variety of ways. The newspaper can be useful in strengthening skills in the language arts and in the social studies and contains information relevant to students of all ages and levels of ability. The variety of topics a newspaper covers makes it possible to individualize learning assignments. Activities for elementary students include developing language arts, social studies, art activities, music, health, science, and mathematics. Secondary level students can benefit from practical application of information obtained from the newspaper as well as from learning possibilities offered by the coverage of current topics in the world, historical perspectives, and world problems.
