Scoop! Hold The Front Page… gives you the chance to create your own tabloid newspaper and uncover all the juicy stories you need for it. It’s the perfect way to improve your communication, time management and team work skills – and your ability to express yourself creatively. As well as opening your eyes to how tabloid newspapers are really put together, it lays on all the resources needed to make your own: laptops, digital cameras, design blueprints, research tools and a number of breaking news stories for you to report on.
In teams, you will research, design, write and edit your own hot-off-the-press publication – and take all the photographs, avoid all the lawsuits and sell all the advertising! Everyone will get to see the results – with prizes awarded for the best.
As news stories break, the people involved in them will be available for you to interview and photograph. Providing you don’t upset them. Will you extract information from them which escapes everyone else? Or will you face an injunction, preventing you from going to press? And what lengths will you go to when getting your story?
Any resemblance this game may have to recent events in the media is, of course, entirely deliberate…
