Imagine that you are a journalist and you make an interview with the scientist.
You are very interested in taking care of our planet and you write articles for the National Geographic and newspapers that buy your texts.
You have been on vacation and you found out that it was impossible to swim in the ocean. You found dead animals on the beach, covered in oil, and you also saw a lot of waste on the beach and in the ocean. You met the scientist at the hotel and you started talking.
You decided to write an article about the situation.
Watch the video below to understand how you write a newspaper article:
When we see each other on Tuesday, week 47, I want you to be ready to start writing.
You need to prepare:
- A mind map
- Make sure you answer the 5 W- questions:
- Who was involved?
- What happened?
- Where did it take place?
- When did it take place?
- Why did that happen?
Some authors add a sixth question, “how”, to the list:
- How did it happen?
Don't write your text at home. Only prepare your mind- map with a few supportive words. I want you to write in the classroom
It is ok to be creative - you need to use your imagination when it comes to who the scientist is, but you need to stick to the truth when you write about the facts. You have many examples here:
Examples of how to write:
Mrs Bruun means that overfishing is a huge problem and Peter Darwin states the same thing in his text: The Caudallure
