The Five Ws, sometimes referred to as 5W1H or 5W’s, are questions whose answers are considered basic in information gathering or problem-solving. The 5W’s storyboard is often used in journalism, research, and police investigation. As per the provided colorful 5W’s storyboard diagram, a news report can only be considered complete if it answers these questions starting with interrogative words: Who, What, When, Where, and Why? The 5W’s charts are used to gather information about a story or subject matter. Questions like Who was involved? What happened? When did it happen? Where did it happen? And why did it happen? allow students, writers, and researchers to understand the full scope of the topic being discussed.
