Bring the world into your classroom with a news stand. Students need a variety of different kinds of text to read, not just books. Newspapers and magazines allow you to make connections to the community and extend classroom work outside the classroom. You can legitimize the reading habits of kids who get excited about the sports page or look forward to the comics every Sunday, display your school or classroom newspaper for all to read, or model your own daily newspaper reading habit.
