A Guide for Teaching Ninth Grade English.
Tokars, Lester E.
Various usages for newspapers in the ninth-grade English classroom are suggested in detail in this teacher's guide. Two large sections--one designed for classes with average learners and one for classes with slow learners--are subdivided into units on the short story, drama, nonfiction, and the novel. Newspapers are used for teaching reading, speaking, listening, and writing skills in each of these units. Student activities suggested include having discussion groups, seeing films, making bulletin board displays, collecting newspaper articles, analyzing styles in newspapers and written materials, and dramatizing newspaper stories. The simplicity and realism of newspaper writing are cited as incentives for slow learners to read. Special attention to grammar, punctuation, style, and language usage is given in each unit. The newspaper is suggested as a good starting point in reading for research, entertainment, information, and opinion. (AL)
