Front Page to Want Ads: Reading Newspapers in the ESOL Class.
James, Charles J.
The article presents suggestions for using English language newspapers in teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). The format of a typical American newspaper is described first. The types of text found in a newspaper are: (1) Technical Material (headlines, tables of contents, mastheads, etc.), (2) Short Material (want ads, squibs, weather reports, etc.), and (3) Long Material (full length articles, editorials, regular features, etc.). On the basis of the three types described, sample reading tests are presented with learning exercises, vocabulary material, and testing procedures. The sample texts include two want ads and one full length front page article taken from two Minneapolis-based newspapers. (Author)
