Tell-Tale Heart - After reading Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart" students create a newspaper based on the events in the short story.
Download includes a newspaper-themed assignment sheet, 2 brainstorming worksheets, tips for writing a newspaper article, detailed marking rubric and 3 newspaper templates. Also includes an editable MS Word file with 3 newspaper templates if you'd like your students to create their newspaper on the computer.
Students really get into this assignment and I've had some amazing work turned in.
A fun and engaging activity for a short story unit or a writing activity around Halloween.
