Making News Connections.
Swiderek, Bobbi
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v41 n7 p584-85 Apr 1998
Describes how one teacher uses news articles to teach connections between the present-day real world and the books that her students read. Notes that her intent is to help readers transfer concepts from one domain (their reading) to another (real life). Offers the example of how this was done with the book "The Giver" by Lois Lowry.
