- Pick five news web sites. It's usually a good idea to pick a couple from your local media market and some from other areas of the world .
Next, divide a sheet of paper into five sections.
Then, have them each go the sites and write down your FIRST FIVE ACTIONS at each site.
Be sure to note which stories you read first, what attracted your attention on the page and which links you clicked on.
This should be done independently so that it is clear how many different experiences in using news web sites exist. Allow about 5 minutes from each of the five web sites to be visited.
