Library Journal
Increasingly, teachers are using daily newspapers as the core of their whole language or traditional curriculums in the classroom. Carroll, a teacher and education coordinator for the Philadelphia Inquirer , describes how newspapers can be used at home as learning tools in order to better the skills learned in school. Carroll details dozens of useful activities in reading, math, and social studies that students (preschool-high school) can pursue through using the newspaper. She proves that the daily newspaper, once taken for granted, can be a valuable learning tool. Recommended for large parenting and teaching collections.-- Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, Pa.
