Looking at Newspapers for Reading Skills

This resource is designed to be used along with newspapers. It looks at skimming/scanning the headlines and titles and then close reading and summarising. There is a sheet to write your own article and another activity to identify the features of advertisements and design your own. You'll need to use newspapers, scissors and glue for the main activities and possibly colouring pens/pencils for designing the advertisement.
