ABOUT THIS ACTIVITYThe Viking Gazette Newspaper is an extra curricular club that provides an opportunity for students to develop their speaking, listening, and writing skills in a setting that simulates the work of a news reporter. Students are assigned teachers and staff to interview by asking questions about school and classroom activities. Reporters take notes and use them to develop headlines and articles that they type themselves for the newspaper.
