One of the areas of focus in the Common Core History ELA standards addresses expository writing. Additionally, this is a great formative and summative assessment to use with students. As we are requiring more writing, why not make it fun and creative. Fodey has created aNewspaper Clipping Generator online. Students can work independently or collaboratively to create an informative article and "publish" their work. In doing such an activity, teachers will be hitting multiple Common Core Tasks (Writing 2, 4, 7 Language 1, 2). Students have the opportunity to name their newspaper, date it, create a headline, and create their article. Once complete, the website generates an article clipping like the one to the side. This would be great to do periodically, as a class activity with unit material jigsawed, or as a CST review and post them around the class or hallway for a gallery walk
