News is information about events that occur on a daily basis. It can come from many different sources, including newspapers, magazines, radio and television.
In general, news should be informative, educational and entertaining. It should be a source of information that people can use to help them learn more about what is happening around the world and in their communities.
It can also be used to educate people about important issues, like health, politics and the environment. It can be written in a way that makes it easy for people to understand.
To help students understand the concept of news, teachers may ask them to answer this question: What is news?
The answer to this question depends on how people in a society judge the news. For example, if a farm wall collapses killing cows and pigs, this would be a very newsworthy event in one society but it might not be as big of a deal in another.
There are five criteria that judges the value of a news story:
*New*: This is something that is new, unusual, interesting or significant. It can be a new country or an event in a country’s history; it can be something that is important for the people of a society; it might involve a big event such as war, death or a crime; or it could be a story about a person who has achieved great things.
**Unusual or interesting: This is something that is different from what people normally think about. It can be an interesting fact about a person, or it might be an interesting piece of music or art.
