Breakfast News !

 

How did the British media cover this week’s hot news?




Objective

Improve the participants ability to trigger/participate in informal discussions about the news.


Approach

Send participants a selection of articles from different British media a few days before the workshop.

Presentation by the trainer of the various media selected (ownership, audience and political leanings) to put them into context. 


Participants invited to give their feedback on the articles :
  • What did they think about them ?
  • How do they compare ?
  • Did they notice a difference in angle, tone of voice or writing style ?
  • Can they compare them to coverage in the French press ?

The trainer uses their responses to clarify their understanding of the articles, (problem terms, colloquialisms, etc.) and provide input on the differences in tone or writing style.

Discussion on the coverage could lead to a more general discussion on the event itself.

One participant asked to provide a one-page summary of the group discussion.
