5 Read all about your newspaper s treasure chest in by Betty Debnam Appearing in your newspaper on. from The Mini Page by Betty Debnam 2003 The Mini Page Publishing Company Inc. (Note to Editor: Above is cameraready, one column-by-4 1 /4-inch ad promoting Issue 10.) release dates: March (03) from The Mini Page by Betty Debnam 2003 The MIni Page Publishing Company Inc. Standards Spotlight: Mini Page activities meet many state and national educational standards. Each week we identify standards that relate to The Mini Page s content and offer activities that will help your students reach them. This week s standards: Students read and understand a variety of texts. (Language Arts: Reading) Students use the structure of text to construct meaning. (Language Arts: Reading) Students write for a variety of purposes. (Language Arts: Writing) Activities: 1. Find an interesting photo in the newspaper. Cut it out and paste it on a piece of paper. Write a story to go with the photo. 2. Find a newspaper ad for an item you would like to have. Draw a circle around the words in the ad that make the item appealing. What other words would you use to describe the item? 3. Look at the sports page in the newspaper. Make a list of at least 10 exciting action words (verbs) from sports stories. 4. Take a survey of family members and friends. Ask them to name their two favorite sections of the newspaper. Which newspapers sections were the most popular? Why? 5. Use news stories and feature stories to learn more about newspaper writing. Cut out the first paragraph from three news stories from the front page of the newspaper. Cut out the first paragraph from three feature stories. (Look in the local, lifestyle and entertainment sections for feature stories.) Compare the two sets of paragraphs. What differences do you see? Use these questions to guide your analysis: Do news stories or feature stories have more words in the first paragraph? Which paragraphs tell you the who, what, where and when of the story in the first paragraph? Which paragraphs try to get your attention by starting with a quote, an unusual fact or an intriguing sentence? Which type of writing do you like best? Why? (standards by Dr. Sherrye D. Garrett, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi) Supersport: Diana Taurasi Height: 6 feet Hometown: Chino, Calif. Weight: 170 Class: Senior Diana Taurasi enjoys cruising around the University of Connecticut in her 2000 Ford Explorer. But she does her best driving, wheeling and dealing on the basketball court. Taurasi is a superstar who has helped Connecticut win 60 straight games as of Feb. 5, a record streak for Division I women s teams. Last season she helped spark the Lady Huskies to a 39-0 record and the national championship. Taurasi makes the spectacular seem routine. In a win over Tennessee this year, she swished a shot from 60 feet just before halftime. Then she tied the game with an off-balance shot at the end of regulation. Finally, she scored the winning basket in overtime. That s Taurasi, a fierce competitor and sharp shooter who can score from anywhere. She also could give the Lady Huskies another ride to the national title. (Note to Editor: Above is the Standards for Issue 10.) (Note to Editor: Above is copy block for Page 3, Issue 10, to be used in place of ad if desired.)
