The Newspaper in Your Classroom: "Quickie" Ideas. Third Edition.
Lindner, Joy
This publication describes 97 classroom activities that employ the newspaper as an aid for teaching language arts skills. The activity ideas are grouped according to four categories: creative writing (ideas for writing such pieces as news accounts of events in stories and poems, letters to the editor, and reviews of books and television programs); working with words (activities that teach such skills as skimming, vocabulary development, spelling, and punctuation); speech and discussion (ideas for such activities as reading news stories aloud, discussing human-interest stories, and conducting interviews for jobs advertised in the classified section); and "potpourri" (a wide range of ideas for learning about the newspaper, creating newspaper columns, class newspapers, and advertising layouts, and developing communication skills).
