Product Description
This product from Chez Nathalie teaches students how to write a newspaper article using the Hatchet novel by Gary Paulsen. The different parts of an article are described in detail as well as how to insert interviews into an article. An example of an article is provided based on the first few chapters of the novel when Brian goes missing. The assignment itself is based on chapter 12 when a plane flying overhead fails to spot Brian.

The product is intended for intermediate students who are writing an article for the first time, so it’s very structured. Students write 6 paragraphs divided into the lead (1), explanation (2), first interview (3), additional detail (4), second interview (5), and extra less important information (6).

For more advanced students, there are a few pages about passive voice, which is often used by journalists. I have included 2 evaluation rubrics; the first one is the basic rubric while the second one includes passive voice.

Specifically, this product contains:
-Title Page
-How to Write a Newspaper Article (2 pages)
-Hatchet Assignment Description
-Example
-Empty Planning Sheet
-Example of Completed Planning Sheet
-Example of Assignment (Chapter 12)
-Evaluation Rubric
