Well, my assignment is to write a news article on the story of the conflict between Beowulf and Grendel.

But one of the criteria is "the story reports facts not opinions."
And another one of the criteria is "theme of the Anglo Saxon poem - triumph of good over evil - is evident."

So basically I'd like some help...how am I supposed to write the story so that it is NOT biased, but still with the good over evil theme? @_@

  1. First of all, just write up the events as just facts -- only the facts!

    At the end, be sure to write about the joy (facts only, remember) of the people Beowulf was trying to save. That'll be the triumph of good over evil you need.

  2. Here are some examples of "facts only" writing -- about an emotionally charged topic:
