23 June 2017 we talked about the eight principle points that make something news; impact, weight, timeliness, proximity, prominence, conflict, novelty, and usefulness. We also talked about the need for concise writing but still cover all the necessary aspects of the story; who, what, why, when, where and how. Students were interviewed to determine those aspects and then interviewed the teacher with those points in mind. Students were asked to write a short news story on one of these eight principle points, on any topic they are interested in, but covering all five necessary points of information.
