Good News Assignment

Students are constantly exposed to news. It is important to showcase the good events that occur as well as the current events. In this Good News Assignment, students find a good news event to share with the class in an oral presentation. Students can present this information in a video format or a live presentation. This can be used with any non-fiction good news article.

This lesson is also included in the Oral Presentations Bundle 2 and the Full Year Middle School English Language Arts Lesson Bundle 2
