Step Two: The News and You
Having chosen an issue for the project, students analyze two news articles about the issue. They apply the “5W + H” method in order to learn how to gather information from a news article. Using what they learn, they describe the current state of the chosen issue.
This resource was created with support from the National Association of Counties.
The students will:
- Read news articles to understand the problem the class has selected.
- Analyze the articles using 5W+H (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
- Summarize the problem.
