Novel Newspaper Project

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Searching the web for a new book report format and found several examples of creating a newspaper about a novel. Found a newspaper lingo guide and then created my own original project instruction sheet. I do not have access to our computer lab, so I can't have them use the printing press on ReadWriteThink and create it online. Most, but not all, students do have home computers and many are much more savvy than me, so I'm sure there will be some spiffy projects. Some of the students are reading the same novel with a partner, but others are reading alone, so I had to adjust for that situation. I'm sure it still needs tweaking as I just finished it, and will add some graphics when I get on my computer at school. I thought I'd go ahead and post it since if anyone wants to use it, you would probably adapt it anyway

Found a site where you can view the front pages of the current day's newspapers from 76 countries. Could be useful for Smartboards.

Awesome idea! Do you have any student examples of what the final newspaper looks like?

We are on spring break this week so students will work on this the end of March. I will definitely try to post photos and report how my 6th & 7th graders do with it--it will just be awhile.

The link to the newspaper front pages is awesome!!!! Fascinating What a find--thanks so much. It will really enrich the lesson.

Great idea! Thanks so much for sharing. I am in need of some of these wonderful ideas - I looped with my class so I am running out of ideas for the end of the year : ) I will use it with my next round of literature circles.
