  • Students read selection independently or as a class

  • Students write appropriate headline focusing on main point of reading


Tips for writing a headline

Tips for writing a headline

  • Here’s a simple headline-writing formula: Number or Trigger word + Adjective + Keyword + Promise

  • Example: Take the subject “bathing elephants.” You could write an article entitled, “How to Bath an Elephant” or “Why I Love Bathing Elephants.”

  • Or you could apply this formula and make it: “18 Unbelievable Ways You Can Bathe an Elephant Indoors”

  • Another (more serious) example: Take a bold promise like “selling your house in a day.”

  • Apply the formula and you get: “How You Can Effortlessly Sell Your Home in Less than 24 Hours”

  • People don’t want to be tricked into reading something boring; they want to be drawn into something exciting. Make it worth their while. Take extra long time to consider what headline will grab people’s attention the most, and make sure that it describes your content in an honest, but attractive, way.
