Teacher Resources: Activity - News judgement (10 mins)
- 20 September 2012
- From the section Teacher resources
Work in small groups or as a whole class.
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?
NOTE FOR TEACHERS
This worksheet contains some headlines which are clearly not genuine news stories (eg "Athletes wear trainers"), while others may spark a debate!
