Week 11


What are the problems with the article “Woman stuck under train at Eagle Junction Train Station, Brisbane”

the article follows the 5 W’s except for the why, however this can be difficult to include if the story was rushed as it most probably was as with out getting the woman to comment would mean this would be hard.

it includes names and numbers for places which can help if your depressed or intend to self harm and it doesn’t include any photos or the name of the woman.


Does it meet the guidelines for reporting self-harm?

Yes. they have supplied relevant information to places where people can go if they are thinking about self harm or are having emotional difficulties or experiencing depression, it also protects the woman identity by not releasing photos or personal information

I found this quiz rather difficult as it was to do with specific styles of writing which I feel can be open to interpretation which is what really throws me off.
