Newspapers seem to be disappearing, but they still have their place. Let this easy-to-use unit lead your students through organizing, researching, formatting, collaborating, and creating a newspaper to be published in print or online. Students practice writing informative, persuasive, and entertaining articles while satisfying Common Core requirements.
Once you have taught this unit, your students will be able to create newspaper projects collaboratively in any subject with little or no guidance. They can even be put in charge of the class newsletter-one less job for you!
Complete instructions/procedures for 6 sessions leading to completion of a subject-themed newspaper, such as “Colonial Times,” “The Way West” or “Inventions!”...even a class newspaper.
