Metro reporter comes to school to teach kids about writing.
Local Lakeview school Connect Charter has their grade six students in the middle of a language arts unit that is challenging their writing skills. Students have been asked to write an article on something in their school or personal life. Their teacher Mr Fawcett scheduled for MRU writing students and Metro reporter Helen pike to come in and talk to the kids.
“Writing an article is getting information from sources (people).” says Helen Pike. Some of the advice students took away from Monday the 13th MRU students visit and Tuesday the 14th Helen Pike visit. I think it was a very important experience to learn from the professionals and the people who do it as a career. “It was a great thing for Mr Fawcett to do to bring in the professionals we learned a lot says one of his students” says Fraser from 6.2. To create an article you need a focus statement or something that the people want to read about. Something that intrigues the reader. To start an article you need a lede. You also need an idea that is interesting. “Something happening or has happened.” says Helen Pike. To help the students with their articles, she advised that the students create an article based on there school or personal life.
The grade six’s took away a lot of information from each visit and are beginning to start there article’s.
