NIE—May 10-16, 2017—Health

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. 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 experience 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.)

• Study a story reporting an accident. Can you determine the probable cause of the accident? Could the accident have been avoided? If someone was injured, could the injury have been avoided or its severity reduced?
