Worksheet: News judgement [27 KB]

Using this worksheet, put a tick next to the headlines you think are the genuine news stories - and a cross next to the headlines that aren't news.

Why did you choose the stories you did?

What do you think the key ingredients of a good story are?

Can your group or class agree on the most important elements of a good story?


This worksheet contains some headlines which are clearly not genuine news stories (eg "Athletes wear trainers"), while others may spark a debate!
