Greetings and topic introduction.

How often do you usually watch TV or listen to the radio?

People primarily read the newspapers for… news! News can be a breaking story, a long running story?

It is important it is read today. We rarely pick up yesterday’s newspaper to read about current news.

Think about an article you have read recently. Why was it in the news? Was it a breaking or a long running story? How important and significant was it?

News stories unswer the following questions:

What happened?

When did it happen?

Who was involved?

Where did it happen?

These questions are answered briefly in the first and in the second paragraphs of the article.
