PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This news writing assignment not only serves to scaffold narrative writing, it is also a great partner project that can be used at the beginning of the year to help students get to know each other. This assignment asks students to write news articles about a partner's greatest accomplishment, and should be taught in conjunction with the conventions of news writing: objectivity, inverted pyramid structure, in-text quotations, and appropriate reading level. Check my store for writing prompts to support this assignment!

This document includes assignment sheet, rubric and two-part peer review checklist. The entire assignment should take between three and five days.
