Writing an objective news summary

Goal: Read and summarize a news article about hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

Books open computers closed. We read.

Reading a news article: 

  • Go to and click the colorful G to sign in with Google.
  • Click "Allow." 
  • Newsela will already know who you are because I already set up your accounts. 
  • Click on Binder (upper right corner)
  • Scroll past the black part and find "Your Work"
  • Click on the title of the article about the hurricane in Haiti. 
  • Open your English Journal. 
  • Write a one paragraph summary of the article you just read. Use the chart below to help you. 
  • Then, write a second paragraph about your thoughts/opinions about the situation. 
  • Keep reading. 
  • Finish your Visual Memoir slide deck. (Due Monday.)
  • Improve your memoir.
