Crafting Literacy Lessons One Article at a Time
Kitain, Sandra
Library Media Connection, v28 n3 p28-29 Nov-Dec 2009
A short newspaper or magazine article can be used by teachers and librarians to boost students' reading comprehension, increase background knowledge, and enhance vocabulary skills. This method can be a powerful bridge to reading longer articles and eventually lead to reading entire books. This article presents a few types of articles for librarians to consider using for discussion and describes their corresponding curriculum connections. The author notes that there are many different instructional exercises which can be devised, dissected, and extracted from one simple article.
