I'm Zac, a secondary English teacher. Let me tell your more about this resource.
I developed this resource for upper primary and lower secondary students to learn about the keys features of a newspaper article from grade 6 to 9
The features of a newspaper article covered in this resource are: headline, byline, hook, body, photographs and captions. The first two pages of this resource are to be used by students when they are looking at a newspaper article. There are short and simple questions that will help students identify the key features. The third and final page is a series of definitions of the key features which can be printed and displayed around the classroom. I've deliberately saved this as a Word document so you can add colours and images as it suits your unit of work.
I usually get students to choose their own newspaper article and cut it out. Then I get them to work through the worksheet based on their own choice. This she best way to differentiate as students will usually choose an article suitable to their reading level and interests. I also suggest that teachers can cut up each box so that a group of students can work on each term, this makes this activity fast and fun. Alternatively, you could set up a key feature box at each table and get students to rotate around a series of stations until they have covered all of the key terms.
If you want more detailed resources on newspaper articles I recommend visiting the Online Writing Lab from Purdue University: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/735/04/
