About this title

Synopsis:

ETRA! EXRA! - READ ALL ABOUT IT! YES THE EMPHASIS IS ON READ. BECAUSE READING IS SO BASIC TO EDUCATION AND THE NEWSPAPER IS SUCH AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR SOCIETY, THE TWO COMBINE TO CREATE AN EFFECTIVE WINNING VEHICLE OF INSTRUCTION. RESEARCH REVEALS THAT 94 PERCENT OF THE LITERATE ADULTS IN THE U. S. READ THE NEWSPAPER. THE PUBLIC INCLUDES AN AGE RANGE OF 16 YEARS AND OLDER, A BROAD CROSS SECTION OF MEN AND WOMEN, OCCUPATIONS, AND LEVELS OF EDUCATION. THIS PROFILE HAS EXISTED FOR THE PAST 50 YEARS. OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM THE CHILDREN ARE CONSTANTLY BOMBARDED BY THE MEDIA. WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT, WHETHER THE CURRICULUM OR THE TEACHER'S MANUAL PROVIDES FOR IT-WE ARE THRUST INTO THE MEDIA ARENA. WE LEAVE THE STANDS AS SPECTATORS AND SUDDENLY ENTER THE ARENA AS PARTICIPANTS IN LOCAL AND WORLD AFFAIRS. WE ARE THERE-ON THE SCENE-WITH THE REPORTER! STUDENTS INTERNALIZE THE NEWS IN A DEEPER DIMENSION WHEN THEY SEE IT, WHEN THEY HEAR IT, AND WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT IT. IT IS THEN THAT A FULL RANGE OF LEARNING TAKES PLACE. THROUGH THE USE OF THE NEWSPAPER THE TEACHER CAN MOTIVATE STUDENTS AND EFFECTIVELY TEACH THE BASIC SKILLS. THE NEWSPAPER IS INTRODUCED IN THIS BOOK AS AN INSTRUCTIONAL AID, A VEHICLE FOR CRITICAL AND ANALYTICAL THINKING AND A RESOURCE FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT. THE TEACHER CAN USE THE DIVERSIFIED NEWSPAPER ACTIVITIES IN THIS BOOK TO PREPARE A VARIETY OF LESSONS AND UNITS FOR STUDENTS. THE LESSONS CAN BE CHANGED AND/OR ADAPTED TO DIFFERENT SUBJECT AREAS AND GRADE LEVELS. THIS BOOK CAN ALSO BECOME A CATALYST FOR THE TEACHER'S OWN CREATIVE IDEAS AND INSPIRTAITON. THE DAILY NEWSPAPER IN EDUCATION IS A NATURAL. SCHOOLS USE BOOKS, TV, FILMS, AV TAPES AND OTHER COSTLY EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES. BUT WHY NOT WELCOME THE LEAST COSTLY AND MOST VERSATILE INFORMATION SOURCE OF ALL-THE NEWSPAPER, WHICH IS A LIVING TEXTBOOK. FINALLY IT DOESN'T WEIGH TOO MUCH, IT DOESN'T COST TOO MUCH AND IF YOU LOSE THIS COMPENDIUM OF LEARNING, THERE IS ANOTHER AVAILABLE TOMORROW.
