This week you will write a current day news article using the main points from a childhood fairytale.

First, to understand the elements of a news article, be sure to watch the video posted under Lesson 2. Then, select the fairytale or children’s story you would like to spin into a modern news article (many options are provided in the Lesson).

Next, consider the main points of the story you selected. Decide on the who, what, where, when, why, and how of the story, and then decide whether there is any additional information your reader might need to know. For example, if there is any magic in the fairytale you have chosen, decide how it might be explained in the real world.

Read the sample fairytale news article example titled “Little Red Riding Hood”, linked here and also attached below.

Then, write the news article about your fairytale or childhood story. Have fun and remember to include all of your key story elements. Some of the questions might not be specified in the story, but they must be answered in your article, even if you must create the answer. For example, most versions of “Little Red Riding Hood” specify no time frame other than “once upon a time,” and many specify no location other than some unnamed woods. You must fill in such gaps from your own imagination.

Remember that news articles are meant to be complete yet brief. Therefore, this assignment has a strict word count of between 150 to 200 words – no more, no less. Think about the story, and use strong vocabulary to convey your message so you can use as few words as possible.

Double check your news article for the following:

Does your article answer the questions who, what, when, where, why, and how?
Did you include an image to supplement your news story?
Did you include a creative headline?
Submit your assignment to Moodle.
