This helpful handout gives an explanation of each section of a newspaper, from the front page masthead and flag, to the details of an actual article including byline and lead. Students are then given the opportunity to identify these sections in a newspaper of the teacher's choice. The handout also allows for a follow up writing exercise which gets students to start thinking about, and writing their own original news articles. Perfect for a review of newspaper elements, or an introduction lesson. Can be used as an entire 60 minute lesson depending on student level, or broken into smaller sections to be worked on over a number of lessons. The original file is suited for A4 size paper, so printing properties may need to be adjusted.
