In this exercise the group will put together a performance with the structure of a news television programme.
- Choose a topic for your piece, from newspapers or something you have seen on the news recently.
- Establish your characters and present your topic. For example, a presenter, guests, weather person, external correspondent, interviewer, etc.
- You have 15 to 20 minutes to structure and rehearse the programme for your audience.
Notes: The objective is to explore what makes a piece of news persuasive. Ask the participants how the article they chose influenced the piece and its presentation?
