In this lesson, students will come up with a layout for their school newspaper. They will finalize final copies of newspaper articles and supplementary parts.
This unit has been immensely successful for many different grades that I have taught it. It touches on all four modalities of learning and gives the students a performance task that they get really excited about - their own newspaper and newscast!
This unit is divided into individual lessons, but I recommend the entire unit, which took a month to create.
