Cummings, Howard H.; Bard, Harry
Suggestions on how to use the newspaper in the social studies classroom are given in this instruction sheet. Objectives for using a newspaper in classes are to help the student develop the habit of reading a daily newspaper; to interest him in current events; and to encourage the student in critically examining newspaper accounts. To encourage habitual reading ideas are given on principles of setting newspaper displays on bulletin boards, and other devices for creating interest in current news such as newsmaps, broadcasts, notebooks, and files. Other sections deal with how to help the student develop a background for news and skills for reading a newspaper; how to evaluate the news; ways that teachers can use news materials which are especially prepared for school use; how to use newspapers to increase the effectiveness of other mass media; and guidelines for using the newspaper effectively in class and for judging the quality of the local newspaper. A brief selected bibliography is included. Related documents are SO 005 979 through SO 006 000. (SJM)
