The author offers step-by-step directions for quick newspaper-based activities--many with reproducibles--to teach everything from capitalization and punctuation to alliteration and onomatopoeia. Tips on getting free or reduced-cost newspapers for the classroom are also included. The book contains the following chapters: (1) Why Use Newspapers--and Where to Get Them; (2) Getting to Know Newspapers; (3) Word Analysis & Fluency; (4) Vocabulary Development; (5) Reading Comprehension; (6) Literary Response & Analysis; (7) Writing Strategies; (8) Writing Applications; (9) Writing Conventions; and (10) Listening & Speaking.
