Students wrote a news article about the sinkhole incident that occurred on 9/11 in the novel, Tangerine by Edward Bloor. Before writing, we reviewed details about writing a news article using the News Article Power Point specifically focusing upon 5 Ws and H, incorporating facts and not opinions.
Students responded to the following prompt using the complete writing process:
After reading September 11, in Tangerine, by Edward Bloor, imagine that you are a news reporter for the Tangerine Times. Write an article reporting about the sinkhole incident at Lake Windsor School.
Most students were able to get their rough draft complete and needed to revise and edit at home. Homework was to write the final copy.
