Using the Daily Newspaper to Teach Social Responsibility, Personal Development and Career Development, K-12 Suggested Guidelines.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
America's teachers and its daily newspapers have long served to increase public knowledge and understanding. Schools and newspapers are encouraging the use of the daily newspapers as a relevant means to learn the basic survival skills that will prepare students for their roles in adult life. The document provides guidelines as well as a starting point for using the daily newspaper in the classroom. The K-12 guide offers program and course goals, performance indicators, and sample learning experiences for the three broad areas of the program: social responsibility, personal development, and career development. Integrated into each area are three additional sub-areas: communication skills; citizenship in the community, State, and nation; and general competencies in career education. A supplemental list of performance indicators is included as a source for further development of classroom learning experiences. (Author/BP)
