Product Description
This is the perfect lesson for a journalism class when you want to show a movie and are looking for a way to tie it in to the curriculum.

Students pretend to be reporters in the world of the movie and write a news story based on events they view. They gather quotes and write the news story in a journalistic style in keeping with the AP style guide and basic news writing techniques.

Includes a planning guide for students to use while viewing the movie and a detailed rubric for grading.

I used this at the end of the year with my journalism class and loved the results so much that I plan to use it at the beginning of the year in the future. It's a great tool for teaching the news gathering and writing process before students go out to interview real people. It also works well as a culminating activity for students to demonstrate they can write in a news style.

The kids had fun and wrote amazing news stories! This works with any movie!
