Read All About it - Navigating the Newspaper
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     What's happening around town? Who won the game last night? What's on TV? If you want answers to these questions, read the newspaper. It will tell you all that and more.
 
2     The front page of a newspaper gives a lot of information. It tells the name of the paper. The city it is printed in is also on the front page. It will tell you how much the paper costs and the date it was published.
 
3     Most newspapers are divided into sections. The first section tells all the news. It gives news about your town. It will tell you what's happening around the country. World news is also in there.
 
4     The most important news is on the front page. Sometimes an article is important, but it's too long for the front page. It might stop in the middle of a sentence. There will be something like "See Page A-3." This means that the rest is on page three of section A.
