Blogging: Current Event
Today you will begin drafting a write up of your current event. Before you can start your draft, you should take a few minutes to reread your original article as well as your note-taking sheet. When you are ready, you may begin writing. Remember to use your own words (don't plagiarize!) and follow the below guidelines.
Topic Sentence: Introduces the main idea of your article, this sentence should include the Who and What.
Body (3-5 Sentences): Summarizes the Where, When, Why, and gives additional information about the article. This is where you should add the 3 important details from your note-taking sheet. Any other interesting details can go here as well.
Conclusion: Restate why this article is important, and share any information about what will happen next.
