This project is written according to the 4th grade common core Listening and Speaking Standards, but can easily be adapted for 3rd through 6th grade!
I have my students use the main article as their “headlining story” and they must choose at least one smaller story (or two if they/you have time) to present as a smaller “event”. The 5 W’s must be included for both. The groups need to work on transitions, presentation, and sometimes I have groups that even throw in a commercial! The students enjoy coming up with their own station name and actually presenting the news, instead of reading and writing about it!
