Here is a good way to use newspapers in the classroom and build a functional vocabulary. Learners are given 26 cards, they write one letter of the alphabet on each. They search the paper to find a name, place, or word for each letter, they cut and glue the words on the proper cards. They then get out both encyclopedias and dictionaries to define each term. Cool idea!
