Using the Newspaper as an Instructional Aid. [Instructional Units].
Smith, Robin; Kozacik, Mary
The document contains 48 Adult Basic Education (A.B.E.) instructional units, designed to help the A.B.E. learner read the newspaper with more facility and interest. The 48 units represent the newspaper's entire range of content. Specific reading skills, stressed in some units, are geared toward the student whose reading ability ranges from above the third grade through the sixth grade levels. Student progress sheets are included which list the title of each unit with a blank for the date completed. Each unit consists of: a guidesheet which lists objectives for the student, the reading skill stressed, suggestions for the teacher, and activities; a worksheet with newspaper information or copy and accompanying questions to be completed by student; and (for some units) an additional worksheet with general questions applicable to the student's own newspaper. A glossary of 29 newspaper terms and answer keys for the first worksheet in each unit are included. (Author/MS)
