PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Three unique assignments to help students demonstrate their understanding of sensationalism.


Students will:
Select current news stories to complete page one and two in which they identify elements of sensationalism and rewrite articles to eliminate the bias. (Students must bring in the news articles from home or use a computer. Teachers can instead provide a print out of current news stories if they choose)
The third assignment will ask students to write a journal assignment on the consequences of sensationalism by senthasizing their learning of two articles about the effects of sensationalized media (I have provided these articles)

I use this assignment as a nice supplement to my English unit on the story And of Clay Are We Created to help students understand how the little girl in the story was a victim of sensationalism.

This assignment is also helpful in units about:
bias
argument
media
news
current events
writing
journalism and integrity
Non-fiction text analysis
