This guide presents activities which use local community newspapers in elementary and secondary classrooms in specific curriculum areas. Following a preface and introduction which describe the Newspaper in Education Program and the particular strengths of the weekly newspaper in the classroom, the guide briefly discusses (from the point of view of the publisher) how to get such a program started and how to budget for it. The guide then presents class activities in five sections: (1) About Your Newspaper; (2) Language Arts; (3) Social Studies; (4) Mathematics; and (5) Science, Health, and Safety. (SR)
