Students use Common Core skills (such as use charts, graphs, photographs, videos, and maps), creativity, and higher level thinking skills to create a Newscast on any topic you choose. The product comes as an editable Word document (the example is on Martin Luther & The Reformation).
This activity encourages the students to apply knowledge that they have already gained by creating a newscast on an important person or topic. It can work quite well as an alternative assessment!
The product includes an assignment sheet with specific requirements (including how long the newscast should be, what should be included, key vocabulary words that must be used), a peer rubric, a group rubric, and a Notes to the Teacher page.
Students enjoy the creativity that comes along with this assignment...I think you will too!
