Reading Non-Fiction: Pirate Visit

Worksheet Overview

In an English exam you may be asked to read a news article.

We are going to look at an article here and then practise analysis of its contents in this activity.
Read the article until you feel that you have fully understood it.
While you are reading think about the following pieces of information:

  • What happened?
  • Where did it happen?
  • Who is involved?
  • Why did it happen?
  • What did people think about it?
  • What is the author's attitude to the topic?
  • Think too about how the headline and pictures link to the text.
