Ich hab schon verstanden, dass grundsätzlich in present tense geschrieben wird, aber der Zeitungsartikel, zu dem wir die Summary schreiben sollen, ist simple past, present perfect progressive etc. Jetzt weiß ich nicht, ob ich den Inhalt des Artikels im Past oder Present Tenne wiedergeben soll
Ihr könnt ja mal einen Blick drauf werfen und mir sagen, wie ihr das angehen würdet. LG und danke :D
Summary of “The Case of Trayvon Martin“
The news paper article “The Case of Trayvon Martin“ written by Charles M. Blow published by “The New York Times” on March 16th 2012, presents the sequence of the murder of Trayvon Martin who was shot by George Zimmerman.
The action took place in Sanford, Florida in the evening of 22nd February 2012.
At first, the author narrates that Trayvon and his father were coming home from the local supermarket. George Zimmerman, who is the neighborhood watch captain, gets curious about the boy.
Next, Charles M. Blow states that Zimmerman decides to call the police, that tells him to stay inside the car. But he chases Trayvon anyway and after a verbal confrontation they start to fight. The police found the dead body of Trayvon Martin laying on the ground after hearing a gunshot from Zimmerman’s handgun. However, George Zimmerman had been later on released with the justification that he was acting in self defense (according to the “Stand your Ground Law”). Furthermore, there is no evidence that could proof something else. Trayvon’s funeral took place on March 3.
