Look at this report from the Hindu, dated 17.01.2008 titled “Books delving into Tirukkural released”.

Read this report and answer the following questions:

1. What is the purpose of this report?

2. What kind of language has been used? Active or passive voice? First person or third person account?

3. Is the presentation clear and accurate?

4. Does the report have the significant details such as what, who and how?

A Report is an accurate and objective description or account of significant events which could be political, social and academic. A report should be simple and clear;
and in third person point of view using the passive voice. Work in teams of three or four. Each team of ‘engineers’ is going to have a design and build a ‘bridge’ between
two tables, using only the following materials: One sheet of A4 paper and Two paper clips

Your bridge must span a gap between two tables without collapsing and without being physically supported by the engineers themselves. The winning group will be the one that builds the LONGEST bridge. You will only be given ONE piece of paper and no extra pieces will be supplied, so don’t fold it, cut it or tear it until your group has reached a consensus on how to construct it. It might be wise to make sketches of your design before starting construction.

Write a report on how each team worked on this.
