Learning Focus

To gain a greater perspective of local and world events, and to identify the ideas, themes and issues involved in the events. 

Learning and Teaching Ideas 

Ask students to select a world news story. How does the BBC treat this news story compared with other international news agencies such as Reuters News Pro? How does the BBC app represent the story or issue? Go to the BBC website at news/ and locate the news story. How is the news on the BBC app different to the BBC News website? Is the story repeated on the ABC News?
