Using Your Daily Newspaper to Teach Vocabulary and Writing.
One of a series prepared by the Hawaii Newspaper Agency, this teaching guide offers ideas on using the daily newspaper to teach vocabulary and writing to students on any level. Suggestions include using a "word of the week" to teach word meanings, uses, and roots as well as how words can be used in a sentence; listing vocabulary words on bulletin boards and in notebooks; students writing their own stories using the five W's (who, where, what, why, and when); and students using cartoons for speaking, writing, and drawing experiences.
