Reading News Articles

185 | 0 | 0
In this lesson learners are made aware of different texts in newspapers in terms of the intention of the writer. We also discuss the different approaches one may take to reading different styles of articles. Learners are exposed to the criteria that editors use in selecting news articles by means of interviews with journalists and editors from the Sunday Times. The interviews will give learners an interesting insight into how newspapers are created, and will help them to understand that newspapers are texts that involve choices. You could use the criteria that journalists and editors claim they use to assess whether articles in the Sunday Times fulfil the criteria.
