Students will paraphrase a newspaper article of their choice.
Includes: Lesson Plan, Do Now Handout (and examples of Paraphrasing, Summarizing, and Plagiarizing for teacher), Worksheet in Spanish and English.
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, which took a month to create.
