Human Interest

A story in the media that makes you feel something

Examples of this:

An example of a human interest could be about what happened in Connecticut. Sandy Hook Elementary got a very scary surprise one November day in 2013. Lots of people were killed, including children. Adam Lanza is the one who killed so many people. This is a human interest story because it made lots of people sad, and left some very angry at this man.

What could you feel?

A human interest story could make you feel happy, pleased, maybe you'd give a thumbs up! Also you could feel angry, betrayed, or even sad. Human interest stories can make you feel anything, really. You could have mixed feelings.
