A worksheet resource examining the use of Emotive Language in Newspapers. It has three tasks that are progressively more difficult as students consider the effect particular language has on the reading audience.
fun activity where you insert the name of some of the students in your class to make it more interesting and then as a class, students have to write down all the emotive words they find in the passage and explain why they're emotive
Students produce the front page of a newspaper acting as sub-editors. The stories, the photos and the basic layout are provided. They have to choose which stories to use, which parts of those stories to use and which photos to use. They also have to write the headlines and the captions. <br />
Intended to be used at the end of a unit on news, this resource challenges students to select what is newsworthy and to realise what can't be printed. Remove the teachers notes at the start of the file, load it onto the network (or individual computers) and then the students can copy and paste text and photos into the provided front page layout. They have to choose which is the most important story to feature on the front page.<br />
I have used this resource with mixed ability year seven classes. With less support, it also challenges year eight students.<br />
The resource contains teachers' notes, instructions for students, a front page template, news stories to choose from and pictures to use. The students should not use other pictures or add extra text (except headlines and captions).

This is a sow for a whole term designed for low ability year 7 pupils including assessments. Focus on news for newspaper and tv. My pupils enjoyed completing this by filming their own news program including the weather. There are a lot of resources some may not have made it to the final sow but I've included them all.
