The K20 Chronicle Unit
The four-part K20 Chronicle unit teaches young journalists how to create informative and engaging news articles. They also learn how to conduct interviews, how to include quotations and photographs, and how to credit and cite sources. A study of journalistic terms teaches them about headlines, dropheads, bylines, and layouts. To demonstrate what they have learned, reporters craft an article about a campus senior they interviewed and submit their story, with pictures, to the school newspaper. Materials are available in English and Spanish.
