Teaching ideas and learning activities for using newspapers to improve reading achievement, reading motivation, and writing skills are provided in this guide. Most of the guide consists of student activity sheets and is designed to assist elementary and secondary teachers in the use of newspapers as teaching tools. The eight sections (and their subsections) are: (1) the purpose of newspapers (the first amendment, functions or responsibilities, what makes news, and how a news article is written); (2) using the newspaper in your classroom (introduction, why use newspapers for reading instruction, and organizing class instruction); (3) behind the scene (advertising department, reporters, photographers, field trips, and other resources); (4) touring the newspaper (introduction and script); (5) vocabulary; (6) sections of a newspaper; (7) newspaper readiness (readiness and scavenger hunt); and (8) activities (comprehension, study skills, vocabulary, creative writing, newspaper page activities, and bulletin board ideas).
