3.en.92 Unsolved mysteries: The flying calculator

After 3 days of hard work, our class reporters Guillem and Pepe, have sent me this report. I’m very dissapointed with the result. Well, the headline is not that bad, I guess it is about the only good part of their article that deserves to be published. It seems that the work done in class with headlines had some results.

Here follows Pepe and Guillem’s article. It really needs to be polished before it can be published in our class newspaper. Let’s see if you can contribute with your suggestions.  I will copy their article in blue and my objections in red.

In case you like it, I enclose a photograph to include in the front page. Claudia’s calculator is not  among the flying objects, but a good caption might put up for that.

THE FLYING CALCULATOR

 

Last Friday, before English class, Guillem found his pencil case in Angel’s table. Inside  his pencil case  he found a calculator. Nobody asked for the calculator, so Guillem asked Zandalie to borrow a black marker, and started to paint the calculator. When Judit saw Guillem painting the calculator, she said that the calculator was Claudia’s calculator, and she told Claudia that Guillem was painting her calculator. Claudia interrupted the class, saying that someone had robbed her calculator. Then, Maria decided to punish Guillem and Pepe on Monday and Guillem had to clean the calculator.

This was Guillem’s report. I’m afraid, Guillem has a long way to go until he becomes a good journalist. Anyway, I will publish his article and, hopefully,  with everybody’s help, next one will be better.

  • Does the reporter answer the “wh” questions? When, Who, Why…?
  • Who writes the article?
  • Is content interesting ?
  • Did the reporter  interview any of the witnesses?
  • Is the order of events clear?
  •  Are there any unanswered questions?
  •  What was Guillem doing in Angel’s desk?
  • Who was the owner of the marker? Zandalie? Guillem?
  • Can a calculator be robbed or rather be stolen?
  • When did the finding of the mysterious calculator take place? During break? During English class?
  • Why did Guillem decide to paint the calculador?
  • What is the role of Zandalie in this mess?
  • Why was Pepe punished?
  • Why did Maria punish Pepe?
  • What was the punishement?

Bearing in mind that Pepe and Guillem spent an hour making a report of what had happened, I have to say that their narration of events is very confusing and biased. I’m afraid, the only part  I like is the headline: flying calculator.

    Does the reporter answer the “wh” questions? When, Who, Why…?
    It doesn’t answer the “Why”.

    Who writes the article?
    Guillem and Pepe

    Is content interesting ?
    Yes, and it’s funny too!

    Did the reporter interview any of the witnesses?
    No

    Is the order of events clear?
    No, because we can see that he found the calculator in the break and Claudia took it in English Class but when did he painted it?

    Are there any unanswered questions?
    “Why did he painted the calculator?”

    What was Guillem doing in Angel’s desk?
    He was taking his pencil case.

    Who was the owner of the marker? Zandalie? Guillem?
    It was Zandalie’s

    Can a calculator be robbed or rather be stolen?
    The correct verb is “to stole”; so it’s: The calculator has been stoled by Guillem. Or: Guillem has stolen the calculator.

    When did the finding of the mysterious calculator take place?
    Guillem found it during the break and Claudia found it during the English lesson.

    During break? During English class?
    During both of them.

    Why did Guillem decide to paint the calculator?
    Because he saw that nobody asked for it (for the calculator).

    What is the role of Zandalie in this mess?
    The black marker Guillem used for painting the calculator was from Zandalie.

    Why was Pepe punished?
    I think it was because he laughed of Guillem when Maria told him that he was punished.

    Why did Maria punish Pepe?
    I’ve already said it: because he laughed of Guillem.

    What was the punishment?
    The had to stay on Monday, from two to three, and the breaks from Tuesday and Wednesday.
