Sample News Story
Ask for a volunteer to read the sample story aloud. Then discuss the text, using the side notes as a guide. Also ask these questions about the sample.
- Why was this topic worthy for a news story? ($2,600 for one school to raise in one day. The fundraiser was for a very good cause.)
- What specific details caught your attention? Name two. (Answers will vary.)
- How do you think the writer gathered her information? (Primarily, by interviewing participants)
