When we start writing about any event we urge students to cover the who, what, where, why, and how of the event. This instantly helps the reader get a handle on the situation at hand and the context. Most news editors often search for these things within every piece that comes across their desk. Most people when first learning about an event taking place will want to know about who, what, where, and when of the event. If the action holds a good level of significance for the individual they will eventually try to understand why or how this event was able to take place and the motivation behind it. The additional details of any report will also stress quantity (how much) and quality (how well). These super worksheets help students work into the process of reporting events and relatively important news.
