Using the Newspaper in Secondary Science.
Guenther, John E.; LaShier, William
Secondary science programs that provide students with a solid background in the principles of scientific exploration generally require active participation in gathering data and solving problems. One of the keys to success is firsthand experience with the materials studied; the use of a variety of educational materials will help students apply their findings to everyday life. This publication provides a series of classroom activities that use newspapers as a learning resource. The following topics are discussed: (1) "Secondary Science Education"; (2) "The Newspaper and Secondary Science Education"; and (3) "About the Activities" (including goals of personal needs, societal needs, academic preparation, and career education/awareness).
