Resolution means something decided upon with firmness of purpose. With the newspaper in hand, encourage your students to resolve to become better readers in the coming year.

Make reading enjoyable with word games, creative assignments and treasure hunts using the newspaper.

Reading Comprehension

Using the newspaper, have your students read about an entertainment event planned for your community.

For each event chosen by a student, have them write out a list of adjectives that might describe the event.

Have them then compare the event to an event they have attended—in what ways are they the same?

Have them contrast the event with another event—in what ways are they different?

Have them predict what might happen at this event.

Have them evaluate how the event will be received and check back with the newspaper to see if it is reviewed.

Have them summarize aspects of the event.
