Students present the news!
« on: February 22, 2015, 03:10:22 PM »
This activity consists of three parts: reading, writing, and presenting.
In the first part, students will be instructed to scan newspapers for necessary features such as headlines, quotes, etc. In addition, students will be shown a short news clip where newscasters are presenting the headlines.
After this activity, the teacher will ask students what they think are necessary features in news stories.
Then the teacher will put students into groups. Each group will present on a particular aspect of the news, such as sports or weather. Students will do their own write up and submit it to the teacher. Each group will present their own news show. Note: The news can be realistic or goofy. The objectives of this activity are collaboration, presenting information in a coherent fashion, and writing attention-getting sentences.

I really like this idea for the use of reading, writing and presenting.
Reading will help comprehension, writing will allow creativity and help them express their
opinion, perhaps.
And presenting will be fun and help build confidence!

Great idea, Noreen!
