The Value of Putting Out a Class Newspaper.
May, Stanley; Pangilinan, Thomas
One of a series prepared by the Hawaii Newspaper Agency, this teaching guide suggests ways of publishing a paper and discusses the skills the youngsters learn in the process. Emphasis is placed on developing the right setting, learning the history of the paper, and acquiring some background in writing. Such sections of the paper as the front page news, editorials and letters to the editor, advertisements, the comics, features, and sports are examined. The class newspaper staff is discussed, and its duties are outlined. It is suggested that more than one issue of the paper be published so that students will learn from their mistakes. (SW)
