The resource book enables you to teach journalism and improve the student’s English skills in context. It contains 750 activities for journalism, reading, language arts, creative writing, and public speaking. There are 50 reproducible pages of study sheets, terms, activities, and quizzes that can be used to grade the course for a high school English or elective credit. Depending on the amount and length of assignments, this could be the basis of a half credit or full credit course (Carnegie system).
Part I, “The Newspaper Itself,” provides an introduction to the newspaper, its production, and journalism techniques. Part II, “The Newspaper as a Teaching Tool,” has seven activity-packed chapters on using the newspaper in the context of other subject areas. There are also guidelines for using the material, handy cross-references, an appendix, and a bibliography to extend learning.
