: I was assigned to write an news article about tom robinsons tril or verdict I have to write about what would have newspapers when they found tom robinson guilty in to kill a mocking bird I dont know what to do im really confused please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read through the summary at SparkNotes http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/mocking/ including the plot summary. Then put what happened in a:

Who
What
When
Where
How (and sometimes) Why

format. To start you off:

Convicted rapist Tom Robinson was shot and killed last night during an escape attempt.

Here is a good online article about writing a news article -- http://www.snn-rdr.ca/snn/nr_reporterstoolbox/invertedpyramid.html
