Writing Style Book, Rubric, and Peer Editing for Journalism

These are essential tools for the teacher and student in journalism (or any English/writing course). Style rules are important, yet students often don't take the time to read thick books like the AP Stylebook. In just three pages, I condense the most used and asked style rules for high schoolers.

Also included are three extra pages with a News Writing rubric and self- and peer-editing checklists. Written very clearly for students to go through on their own. The teacher's rubric follows the student's checklist, so if the mistake makes it all the way to the final draft, it's no one's fault but the writer's.

These can be used for expository and informational writing, as well. Works well with the Common Core State Standards.

This IS included in my Journalism Writing & Planning Bundle AND in my Journalism Handbook and Stylebook {Editable}.
