    Student Newspaper (5th Grade)
    By kwh

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I am reading The Landry News (A. Clements) with my students and they have become inspired to start a student-run school newspaper. I'm all for it and willing to supervise. Do any of you do this? Any tips for managing it smoothly and efficiently - while staying kid focused - would be appreciated!

    This is what I'm planning so far...
    - a trip to the local newspaper where they do a great presentation on running a real newspaper
    - guest speakers who are reporters/editors to answer questions for the kids and offer advice
    - an application to be on the newspaper staff, where students will get the chance to fill out a real application and be interviewed for key positions (editors, etc.) - one child has already said that he's working on his resume!
    - creating timelines
    - brainstorming as a "staff" what we would like for features

    Thank you in advance! You all have the best ideas and advice!
