End of Unit 3 Assessment: Drafting the Newspaper Article

Choose your words carefully. Scholars continue looking at the creation of a newspaper article by examining word choice. They highlight key verbs, vocabulary, and descriptive words in the model article Sandy wreaks havoc across Northeast; at least 11 dead. Learners complete a Drafting the Model Newspaper Article form as they begin working on authoring their own newspaper articles for the End of Unit 3 Assessment.
