This is a final project on the book Becoming Naomi Leon, a coming of age novel by Pam Muñoz Ryan about a quiet half American-half Mexican girl, whose life with her great-grandmother and younger brother is peaceful, until her mother reappears after abandoning her and her brother years earlier. Students have to write a newspaper article about what happens in the courtroom. Includes a step by step outline handout with student directions, a list of transition words and phrases, and a rubric. A fun culminating activity to add to your book study.
