Students will annotate two different journalists’ writing styles and complete a Venn Diagram; identify 3-5 distinct features of each. Includes: Lesson Plan, News Articles in English and Spanish, Venn Diagram, and Vocabulary definitions and examples.
In this unit, students will produce their own class newspaper and newscast that they will get to watch on the last day of the unit.
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 since it has been such as hit with students and administration.
