March is Newspapers in Education Month

Using the newspaper helps students learn about community activities and issues. They can keep track of issues about their schools, water management, school sports, local events as well as the cost of food and services.

Start a News Journal

Ask your students to collect news items, editorials and advertising that interests them. Put each one in a separate section of the journal. Have students create activities to check their comprehension of each article such as:

  • Crossword puzzles
  • Vocabulary searches
  • Antonyms

Keep Collecting

Over time, collect further items on the chosen topics, review the information, compare with the older feature to understand the progress. Have students list the people involved, summarize points of view or graph changes.
