Observation and description

Observation and description

Shared by: Matthew Schott

Who are you: I’m the publications adviser at Francis Howell Central H.S. in St. Charles, Mo. where I advise the newspaper, yearbook and literary magazine and each of those publications digital component.

Briefly describe the lesson you are sharing: This is a one to two day lesson I teach a couple days into my unit on profile/feature writing. It focuses on getting reporters to observe what is going on around them and taking them past just simply looking at something and describing it. I usually tie this in to my unit on writing profiles.

Download: Here is a handout he uses with his class for this observation lesson.
