Creating a draft for a Newspaper Report


There are 10 slides in this lesson.

In previous lessons you created a plan for your newspaper report by selecting the information to include on the planning table.

Today you will use the information to compose a first draft of your report. It should be between 300 and 500 words long

  • It is very important that you retell the information in your own words. Do not copy it down exactly as it appears in the information source.

Outline is below:

  • Reread the information you have included on your planning table.
  • Decide on a headline for your story.
  • This may change later when you are editing and improving your work.
  • Write the lead paragraph, being sure to answer as many of the key questions as possible.
  • Write the rest of the report with the most important information first and the least important at the end.
