Intended to provide readers with a variety of classroom activities using newspapers, this booklet begins with a brief explanation of the Newspaper in Education program. The second chapter discusses the various uses of the newspaper in the school curriculum, giving special consideration to the number of newspapers needed; the "how" of instructional use; teaching about the newspaper; teaching about the role of the press in a free society; the newspaper in developmental reading, remedial reading, and literature; the newspaper for writing skills and grammatical skills; and the newspaper in the social studies, political science, economics, sociology, and other disciplines. The third chapter offers tips for getting started--contacting the newspaper and determining cost, methods of payment, and services provided. The fourth chapter discusses how to evaluate the newspaper's effectiveness in education and the last chapter examines the newspaper as a resource in the classroom. (HOD)
