Seitz Elementary

It was a challenging task. After three days of learning about journalism and even participating in a “press conference”, the Fifth Graders at Seitz Elementary in Fort Riley, KS, were asked to write a news story themselves. The topic: The person their school is named after, General Richard J. Seitz. They did a great job, remembering to use quotes from the press conference with the general’s son Rick and his nephew John, pay attention to the details and start with a “hook”.

Here is the first collection of some of their reports, some complete, some only with a few sentences, more to come. (For privacy reasons, the students’ names must not be published.)
