Want to help your students learn how to analyze a news article? In this day of Social Media news notifications, deep reading of an article may seem to be a thing of the past. Yet, it is still important for building media literacy and historical analysis skills.
Use this graphic organizer to break down a newspaper article (either present or past) and then enjoy the discussions that come from it. This activity asks the student to consider the who, what, when, where, why AND how while also bringing their attention to journalistic sources and accompanying graphics.
Enjoy the discussions that will come from the deep reading into what is still a viable news medium - even if it seems somewhat quaint and archaic!
