Using Your Daily Newspaper to Turn On the Resistant Reader.
Hawaii Newspaper Agency, Inc., Honolulu.
One of a series prepared by the Hawaii Newspaper Agency, this teaching guide offers suggestions on using the daily newspaper to "turn on" the resistant reader. Sample materials describe how to use the 5 w's (who, what, where, when, why) and a H (how) to answer questions, read without words, play beginner's bridge, use comics for learning, watch television, use puzzles for building vocabulary, pretend to be an announcer on the air, and pretend to be "Dear Abby." Also included are ideas for job hunting, choosing a car, playing games with sports, astrological forecasting, writing responses to editorials, finding out more about restaurants, studying geography, and keeping up the the latest fashions.
