Over the last three decades, major changes have taken devote the English dialect teaching methods, especially in second and foreign language learning circumstance. This paper aims at analyzing the value of utilization of papers and mags in the class and locating the ways on how to use printing media. The school room becomes a multidimensional environment. It really is problematic for the teachers to manage this multidimensional environment. It is vital for them to make the students in a position to use the news headlines paper and at exactly the same time deal with alternative activities such as researching for information from catalogs and magazines. The following issues are wide open for conversation: the importance of media on the whole and education specifically; media are persuasive and pervasive, example newspaper publishers and magazines. The possibilities of 'interactive or 'student-centered' methods to train writing skills in British through newspaper and I review basic types of procedures common in British Language Teaching to design tasks for literary research will be talked about. Such tasks I suggest, newspapers will surely supplement the original lectures.

Newspapers are easy to be earned the class in different subjects and lessons, especially in geography, record, literature, terminology classes, etc. Some of them have valuable information for these subjects, but we ought to learn how to find this information. Many libraries have systems of classification based on the topics and issues and we can easily find our way in searching these details. If not we'd spend a lot of time to find something. It is often said that academics success starts off at the collection. There will vary purposes and ways for using magazines in language school room. They might be used for the culture they transfer. The more widely students read, the greater their knowledge of this cultural so this means will be. They may also be utilized for reflecting changes in the dialect as well, and in doing so, helping students and teachers keep up rate with such changes. Most newspaper publishers are linguistically up-to-date and provide valuable linguistic data. They may be used for the wide selection of text message types and language styles, not often found in textbooks. At the same time, newspapers provide a natural way to obtain lots of the types of Written British that become very important to students, and valuable for vocabulary research as the students' improvement. So, they may be used as supplementary materials and illustrations in Text Evaluation, Academic Writing, Stylistics, Semantics, etc. while inspecting different kinds of texts. All of the subjects and topics makes newspapers interesting and motivating for the students to work with. Newspapers report real-life events, and this arouses students' curiosity. Newspaper-based activities in the classroom may participate students in enjoyable activities and encourage their further reading. Newspaper publishers are an invaluable source of real materials. The greater students read, a lot more they would like to explore.
"People learn through reading, and reading about interesting new things in one's interest subject, undoubtedly helps motivation". (Paul Sanderson, 2002)
Newspapers are also a great source for ESP instructors. They can be used as teaching materials to develop students' language skills. They can be used effectively with a variety of levels from Elementary to Advanced, either interpreting them or using them because they are. Some newspapers are readable, simple to use. The committed instructors can design exercises to build up reading understanding, critical thinking skills, writing skills, grammar skills, vocabulary, map/graph reading skills, geography skills, public study skills plus more. Having a whole lot of magazines and information the instructors should be careful with just how how to organize a certain activity with them. So, they can be particularly well suited for mixed-ability classes, with respect to the activity, questions, etc. In planning a lesson utilizing a newspaper, the tutor should consider the distance of the article, paragraph, the complexity of the language, the density of information, the subject-matter and content, the time available and the amount of the students. Nowadays, we could living in a period of rapid scientific changes in mass marketing communications. Through Internet, we can now access a large number of newspapers and periodicals worldwide. Internet has progressively more become a major way to obtain newspapers and journals for language educators; just find the web site and click. But we have to be very careful in choosing suited newspaper materials to use with this students.
It is effective to bear in mind these questions:
Will my students find the materials interesting? If yes, they will raise students' desire. If no, the students will be frustrated.
Will be the materials befitting their level of knowledge? If they're too difficult to be grasped, students will be discouraged. Often their level of understanding would be O. K.
Will be the materials befitting the students in terms of terminology level? Choose more difficult materials, choose materials where in fact the terms level is suited to the amount of students, and choose responsibilities that you can do by the students at a certain level.
MUST I use only materials from today's papers? The answer is yes and no.
Lessons take time to put together. The schedules of the instructors are periodically active. Once we find a fascinating material, we may use it over and over again, keeping away from articles or media mentioning times or topical happenings, data for well-known personalities, etc. Another very important issue about publication use is materials collection. It really is an on-going process and worth carrying it out. Choosing and collecting short articles, weather forecast, advertising, headlines, etc. is a difficult task, but we might use them at a later time and more than once for different students. So, it is necessary to be very careful in organizing publication materials. Once we start collecting them we ought to begin thinking to organize them, put under certain categories, systematize them, etc. Everyone has experienced often the stress when he/she recognizes that he/she has that piece of information but will not keep in mind where he/she has said. It is good to categorize the materials under certain titles, headlines, advertising, etc. or under theme titles, sport, theatre, relationship, according to language degree of students, etc. Of great importance will be the use of the photographs and illustrations. We have to be careful to get ready these materials in good quality to use them again and again, and with every passing year we create folios and enrich them, then photocopy what we wish for students' use. We have to not stay away from magazines in the class room only convinced that they are difficult for our students. It is true that the vocabulary there may be difficult, but after all it is authentic. There are several ways of making publication materials usable for the various degrees of students, by selecting interesting newspaper publishers and the students will be interested in reading them and would neglect some difficult expressions. An essential thing that improves success in using newspaper publishers in the classroom is the careful design of tasks. "Grade the task - not the material' is a well-known maxim in terminology teaching'. Regardless of the issue of the text messages, the duty should suit the level of students, this is more important than the difficulty of the text. The participation of students in pre-activity, while-activity planning techniques, in the selection of materials and in carefully planning the tasks will be the key to success.
Here are some pre-activity and while-activity prep techniques you can use in blend with one another: (Paul Sanderson, 2002)
Give the students the materials before the lesson, ask them to look for vocabulary at home
Explain any key vocabulary in the materials
Summarize the newspaper item
Ask the students to brainstorm what they find out about the papers item
Inform the students the headline and show any accompanying photograph
Before reading, write on the panel and explain key vocabulary
Ask the students to forecast the story-line
Allow your students to use a dictionary during the activity
Encourage your students to travel for the overall meaning of an text, alternatively than to understand every word
Encourage your students to bring to their reading their own world knowledge
Try to help the students in understanding the grammatical complexity of the written text, facilitate to assimilate the density of information, speculate the low-frequency vocabulary, etc.
The papers activities might be considered a great deal, interesting and multidimensional. They might be about the headlines, headline mixtures, articles, categorizing articles, information flash, adding it back together, exchanging the news, position articles, press convention, filling in the gaps, reports in brief, photos, predicting photos, famous faces, photo reports, moving pictures, adding the picture in the storyplot, advertisements, classifying adds, role-plays ads, job interviews, horoscopes, problem site letters, TV guides, cartoons and strip cartoons, acting out cartoons, remove cartoon reviews, weather forecast, predicting the weather, complementing weather forecasts, magazine reading part, find someone who special interest groupings, magazine puzzles, crosswords, and many more.
There are different kinds of mags. Regarding to a questionnaire done with senior high school and university students most of them stated that they liked to read mostly political, scientific, fashion, cultural, entertaining and sport journals. This interest of the school and students should be exploited by the professors to up-date their teaching materials and break the monotony of the lesson by using always the textbooks.
As with newspapers, publications are resources for different subject matter, cutting out pictures and passages associated with particular subject areas. Magazines are also sources in terms development in providing pictures to promote verbal or written testimonies. For example, they might be used for presenting colors and clothes, means of transport, short experiences, stimulating picture conversations and for other supplementary materials as well, which cover a subject that may be under discourse in a dialect class. For the ways how to use publications in the school room we can refer to the ideas and signs given for the newspaper publishers. Both newspaper publishers and magazines have lots of things in keeping.
