Use newspaper concepts to help students integrate knowledge from multiple disciplines as they write about current events and the lives of others in an unbiased and accurate way. This book was created by preservice instructors to teach upper elementary students (grades 3-5) newspaper concepts, journalism, and how to write newspaper articles. Based on the Newspaper in Education program--a cooperative venture between newspaper publishers and schools that offers newspaper activities to teach reading and contents skills and strategies--the book takes the concept further and incorporates a focus on writing. Your students will learn about the organizational structure of news stories; writing different types of news articles; using quotes and figurative language; interviewing; and revising, editing, and composing a newspaper. As you go through this book, you'll enjoy the "newspaper look" of its pages, the informal tone of its language, and its rich offering of lesson plans, activities, sample worksheets, terms, and resource lists that you and your students can use to create your own classroom newspaper.

Students can gain a great deal from reading and writing a newspaper. Reading newspapers keeps children in touch with the world around them, while reinforcing valuable literacy skills like comprehension and vocabulary. Writing about current events and about the lives of others in an unbiased and accurate way helps students integrate their knowledge from many other disciplines, especially communication arts, social studies, fine arts, and technology. Newspaper writing also reinforces skills that can be used to write in all content areas.
Based on a unit developed as part of the Newspaper in Education program, Creating a Classroom Newspaper will provide a background in both reading and writing newspaper articles. The classroom-tested lessons in each chapter will teach elementary students how to collect information, quote sources, and organize facts before writing. Students will also write different types of newspaper articles, including news, human interest, and sports stories, as well as book reviews and letters to the editor. The result of these lessons is an actual newspaper that students can publish for their classroom or school.
Creating a Classroom Newspaper is an excellent resource for any elementary teacher looking for writing lessons that not only carry over into other areas of language arts but also get students excited about writing to create a published newspaper.About the Author:
