Product Description
For this book project, each student must synthesize information from a book to write a newspaper page entirely about the book he or she read. The ultimate assignment must also use computers to generate the final product for publication. Accessible by all, this assignment allows for creativity, shows comprehension, and gives students a fun way to practice expository writing.

Students create a newspaper masthead that correlates to the topic of the book read. Then, students choose two main aspects of the book and use them as inspiration to write expository “news” paragraphs. Pictures, captions, and advertisements are also integral parts of the assignment. Extras like features, weather, cartoons, editorials, or obituaries are fun options for students who meet the initial criteria.

Expository checklists and extensive rubrics are included to make grading easy and quick for you with quality feedback for your students. I’ve used this for several years, mostly with non-fiction books. This could be adapted to work with any genre, however.
My students create amazing newspapers, learning a lot, writing concisely, and having a great deal of fun in the process. Please let me know what you think!
