Snowfall Lesson Plan
This is an two-day lesson plan that immerses students in the digital journalism world and encourages them to identify elements of strong storytelling as well as how they advance the story visually. It will involve students using a graphic organizer to list and explain each element that adds to the overall story and analyzing it for effectiveness within the medium. As a future teacher, I want my students to be able to analyze immersive and progressive storytelling techniques that advance the importance of technology in journalism and storytelling and when they would include the elements in their work. Based on Snowfall by the New York Times (2012).
