This assignment has been a favourite of my students for years! Used during an expository writing unit (or newspaper article writing) students "cruise the news" to find a newspaper article of their choice to present a "mini-presentation" to the class. One or two presentations daily was a great way for students to stay in touch with current news and get practice doing oral presentations. Students loved having the choice to pick whatever article they wanted! This year I used it during a teen health unit and students had to pick an article that was relevant to teens. Can be modified for any subject area! Very engaging and simple to differentiate. Assignment and assessment included.
