The Newspaper in the Classroom. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Heitzmann, William Ray
This review of the research on using the newspaper in the classroom offers suggestions to aid teachers in incorporating the newspaper into their class activities. Ways in which the use of the newspaper improves classroom discussion and reading skills and motivation (in inner-city schools especially) are discussed. Suggestions for specific activities are given for elementary grades, social studies, English and communication arts, and other subjects. Suggestions are made as to how to begin using newspapers in the classroom, and a list of resources is provided. (MKM)
