The Outsiders - Writing Task - Newspaper Article - Point of View
The following is a writing task I use with my students for my unit on S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. To better understand literary point of view and the elements and stylistic features of a newspaper article, students write about the fire in Windrixville as if they are a reporter on the scene.
Included in this document:
*** Task sheet for students with instructions and expectations
*** Assessment rubric (IB MYP friendly)
*** Elements of a newspaper article mini-lesson
*** Student newspaper article checklist
*** Nine student samples in colour for students to use as exemplars - also having students assess and moderate other student work and come up with a consensus for grading is a great activity in itself!
