Knowlton, Steven R., Ed.; Barefoot, Betsy O., Ed.
Thirty-eight brief articles first make the case for using newspapers in the college classroom and then offer examples of how newspapers should be used in the following subject areas: business (advertising, business writing, management); English (composition, research writing, women's studies); first-year seminar (honors seminar, reading, study skills); journalism; philosophy; science (chemistry, biology, environmental science); social science (history, geography, political science, government, international relations, public affairs, statistics); and teacher education. Reports of applications briefly describe the institution and classroom setting, explain the instructional strategy used, and provide contact information. (Some articles contain references.) (DB)
