One of a series prepared by the Hawaii Newspaper Agency, this teaching guide offers ideas on using the newspaper to teach critical thinking. It includes suggestions for developing critical awareness of the facts that content differs from newspaper to newspaper, that newspapers contain both factual reporting and opinion, the objectivity in news reporting has limitations, and that journalism has earned a permanent place in American literature. The guide concludes with a list of the 12 most commonly used propaganda devices. (RB)
