Have you ever used the comics to teach fractions?

Or used datelines to plan a trip around the world?

Or even had students plan a well-balanced meal for their family

using advertisements?

Have you ever used the newspaper to teach anything besides current


These are all

activities that can be done using the newspaper. In

a time where textbooks are the focal point of the curriculum, the

newspaper is a supplement that provides up-to-date information to

which students can personally connect.

Recent studies have shown that the use of

newspapers in the classroom has been linked with improved SOL scores.
