This Week’s Anton Lesson Plan

Among the topics that get regularly covered in all facets of the newspaper business are stories having to do with health and wellness. Chalk it up to the fact that living healthy lives is something that affects all people and as such, features that touch on topics having to do with this are not only widely read, but shared and disseminated. It can range from pieces that deal with government and health agency studies that reveal the benefit or detriment of a certain kind of food and recalls of defective consumer products to medical advancements in the areas of pharmaceuticals and surgical procedures. The following are exercises students can do to get experience in the different facets of health and science that wind up making up the content of a newspaper.

• Find stories about accidents and write safety tips on how they could have been prevented. Write a skit to demonstrate your safety tips to the rest of the class.

• Pretend you are living 200 years from now. What has happened to the world because of pollution? Write a news article telling about this future world. (Review news stories in this week’s newspaper to learn the elements of news writing style.)

• Create a machine that you think would save energy. Write a news story telling about you invention.
