 Why use news articles in the classroom? 

   -Using “real” news articles engage students

   -Students are more apt to read an article with the newspaper’s masthead appearing at the top of the selection.

   -Articles are often short or easy to chunk which allows for easy scaffolding as needed

   -Great companion pieces for literary and other non-fiction reading

   -Use of different articles on same topic differentiates for reading level variation
