When I first started teaching high school English and journalism, I discovered the benefit of using newspapers in teaching. I purchased the class set myself to use with the newspaper staff but used the paper In other classes, too. Their biggest success – from my perspective as the new teacher – was in my 10th grade remedial English class. Those students who all struggled with reading the state- adopted text would eagerly read sports, car ads, news, etc. The newspaper was authentic reading. I knew how to incorporate newspapers into my lesson plans and was willing to purchase the class set of papers once a week. That newspaper learning experience doesn’t happen for most students (K-12) without NIE programs and may happen less often with newspapers cutting NIE programs.
