Using the Newspaper To Teach Secondary Language Arts.
Guenther, John E.; Bushman, John H.
This handbook provides the secondary language arts teacher with a series of meaningful activity options which use the newspaper as the learning resource. The handbook discusses the purposes of language arts education, the advantages of using the newspaper as a resource, and the relationship between the two. Taken from numerous books, kits, guides, and journal articles, the activities in the handbook were selected because they are supportive of the purposes of language arts education. Applications of activities for writing, literature, and speech are included. (RS)
