Sunday’s (Monday) For Teachers: Creative Writing Satire

Please check out my previous Storytelling posts here.  And my 365 Reviews here.

Hey, everyone!  No Wednesday reviews for me today.  My wife is working a crazy long week, and I’m picking up the slack at home and at school.  I will be posting a very cool interview this Friday…with a cool guy that was in a film that I’m sure most of you have seen!  For now, continue to enjoy my students’ fun satire headlines and enjoy the suspense!

Every once in a while, I have the opportunity to teach some young people how to write satirical headlines in the style of The Onion, and my Creative Writing class dove right in, and while they were new to the process, they hit on some gems.  I hope you enjoy these satirical headlines from my students, and if you are interested in how I front load the skills, let me know!  I also had some luck with this lesson in the past, and you can read past student headlines here.

Enjoy these!
