KS3 English - Newspaper Journalism Writing Scheme of Work - Writing to Inform - 8 Lessons
Before becoming an English teacher, I was a journalist. I used my skills and knowledge gained there to create a scheme of work to teach students about how language is used in news writing. The SOW proved very successful with Year 9 students of varying abilities. The SOW is 8-10 lessons long, depending on your students' ability. It leads up to students writing their own news article using the skills gained in the SOW.

The SOW uses the following learning objectives in its lessons:

LESSON 1
To understand how newspapers use layout
LESSON 2
To compare and contrast online and printed newspapers
LESSON 3
To explore the power of images in newspapers
LESSON 4:
To understand more about the language of types of newspaper writing
LESSON 5
To explore the way newspaper stories are structured
LESSON 6
To identify and understand emotive language, and its effect on readers.
LESSON 7
To understand how to write clearly, concisely and correctly.
LESSON 8
To understand how to put a whole article together
