DeRoche, Edward F.
The effects of using newspapers as adjunct materials in education have been documented in recent research. Research results indicate that students are seriously deficient in civic knowledge, and that the newspaper can serve as a bridge between home, school, and community by educating youth about the real world and by influencing their knowledge of current affairs and governmental functions and their daily reading habits and attitudes. Newspapers are useful in involving parents in the education of their children, in improving communication within the family, and in minimizing summer educational losses. Newspaper use in elementary and secondary classes encourages educational gains in such areas as current events knowledge, reading ability and comprehension, communication skills, and daily living skills.
