PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

All news stories need a beginning, middle and end, i.e. a storyline that logically advances. A news story may include accurate facts but it lacks clarity if it reports any fact in any order.

This 32-page lesson plan introduces scholastic journalists to proper story structure for broadcast news to maximize clarity and lessen the chance of inaccurate news diffusion. Students are challenged to evaluate the news value of information; write an appropriate lead; and structure the remaining information in a way that clearly and accurately advances the story to a logical conclusion.

The lesson plan provides lectures and activities that can be completed in 2 x 50-minute class periods and includes:

• Lecture notes with highlighted vocabulary and script examples, including 2 x large-group activities with answer keys -- pp 2 - 6
• Individual writing assessments: 2 x writing exercises with answer keys -- pp 7 - 10
• Overhead notes – pp 11 - 32
