This download contains a step-by-step process for students to follow while creating a feature news story, either for an English course or the high school newspaper itself. The unit includes a 1-page overview of the feature story assignment, including the prompt itself, step-by-step process for creating a feature, assignment deadlines, details for a formal story proposal, tips for writing news, and additional requirements; a 2-page handout for students to gather contact information and organize interview ideas before meeting sources; and a 1-page teacher evaluation form for the final draft of the feature. Contact me if you'd like links or recommendations for strong sample features. Also check out my other materials for grammar and mechanics, literary units, and writing instruction. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance either before or after purchasing a product; I'll be happy to help where I can.
