As an English teacher and literacy coach, I have used this package successfully with hundreds and hundreds of students. Originally developed to help students prepare for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, the package is a wonderful resource for teaching a news report to grades 7-12. This comprehensive package includes an example news report assignment, a graphic organizer, an example completed graphic organizer, an example newspaper report, an analysis of why the example is effective, and a marking rubric.
Check out the complete preview.
Package is in Word so you can modify.
