The Story Behind This Task

You are…

The editor-in-chief of a newspaper! 

Nowadays, the internet is a haven for information. If you want to know something about a certain topic, you are guaranteed to find information on it. Do you want to know about all the different types of frogs? Then the internet will give you a number of websites to choose from. Do you want to know about plate tectonics? The internet is there for you. 

However, not all the information on the internet is useful, and not even all of it is trustworthy.  

You are sick and tired of all the useless and untrustworthy information that you’ve found on the internet, and you’ve decided to start your own newspaper, with your own stories, and your own sources. 

In this task, you will learn the difference between different newspapers and how to structure a good newspaper article. 

You will create the front page of your newspaper, and write articles to fill it. You will write a total of at least 3 articles and create the layout of your newspaper.
