Today we went over the structure of a news report (accessible as a google doc here):
Mrs. Lee handed out envelopes with an article cut into paragraphs about Julius Caesar. Based on what students learned about the components of a news report structure, the article was arranged on the desk. After students could verbally defend their arrangement and put the paragraphs in the correct order, the students were mark the complete article for the following with brackets:
The remaining sentences are checked for redundancy. The word box at the bottom of the article may be used by students to write a summary. Since a summary should be no longer than half the length of the thing being summarized, the Julius Caesar article summary should be no longer than 100 words.
1. If not completed in class, complete your summary of the Julius Caesar article by next class.
2. Complete the summary of the first two pages of F.I.T.O, if you have not already completed it before class.
