Classroom Newspaper Handbook.
Orchard, Diane T.
Using one newspaper produced by an upper elementary school class as an example, this booklet describes how to put together such a newspaper in ways that will develop students' language skills. Chapters provide (1) a rationale for classroom newspapers, (2) organizational schemes for the newspaper, (3) possible job assignments, (4) some workable time lines, and (5) related newspaper activities for large groups, small groups, and individuals. Appendixes provide tips for extending vocabulary, offer substitute words to replace "said," suggest helpful audiovisual materials, list some tips for good "news" writing, suggest questions for guest speakers, provide reporter guidelines, offer a readability check, and provide sample letters to staff, as well as sample newspapers.
