Product Description
Step Two in the writing of an inverted pyramid news story (after the Event Map) is the outline. After students' event maps are approved by both a student editor and me, they move to filling out their inverted pyramid news story outline. They will have already learned the aspects of an inverted pyramid story, and this outline also serves as a good review. (And, I used it as my outline when I first teach and review the points to an inverted pyramid story). The scaffolding of this writing assignment, requiring both the event map and the outline complete before even beginning to write a draft, is essential to students producing quality writing. If students don't have the facts and ideas to complete these two graphic organizers, they aren't yet ready to write. They may need to go back to researching and /or interviewing until they can fill out both in complete. (The Event Map is another of my materials and is posted below.)
