Maine Newspaper-In-Education: An Activities Book for Educators.
Lisnik, Charron; And Others
Because tests have shown that students become more proficient in the areas of language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science by using newspapers in their classrooms, this activities booklet was designed to help educators teach children to use the newspaper to improve their skills. Following a section of suggested guidelines for teachers, the booklet provides a newspaper vocabulary list, shows the step-by-step progression of a news story and describes how advertising becomes part of a newspaper. The next five sections present activities for using newspapers in language arts, social studies, mathematics and science, health and physical education, and creative arts programs. The book concludes with a bibliography of newspaper-in-education materials. (HTH)
