This is an outline that I created for C.N.N. Student News using the Teaching Basic Writing Skills template. The objective is to have the students watch C.N.N. Student News and have them select one of the current event topics. They then write four details about that topic and use those details to write a summary sentence. I do this every Monday with my students. They look forward to Carl and his puns! Should take roughly 15 minutes to complete, that includes watching the video.
