Think About the Newspaper

Investigate the significance of adjectives with a newspaper activity that addresses effective language. Readers probe teacher-provided articles in search of the mighty modifiers, and practice by replacing them with a different word, and discussing the change in meaning. A homework assignment is included, as well as the rubric for its assessment. The resource can be modified, or used as a project that discusses the differences in prose writing.
