Using Newspapers to Teach Reading Skills; A Report to ANPA (American Newspaper Publishers Association) Foundation.
Wilson, Robert M.; Barnes, Marcia M.
The newspaper can prove to be a valuable learning tool in the classroom because it has great variety in terms of topics and interests, is expendable, is available in all communities, is current, and is inexpensive. This report details ways of using the newspaper for teaching reading skills in both elementary and secondary grades. The contents include an introduction including guidelines for using the report and a discussion of the format; an examination of affective behavior in relation to reading; and outlines of various reading comprehension skills which may be aided by using the newspaper: locating information, interpreting pictures, interpreting literal information, using information for thinking, and using study skills.
