Assignment for Feb. 20

Note that there is NO class on Feb. 18 in honor of Presidents Day.

Using these videos, class "press conference," and the Word.doc attachments sent to you by email, write a new news story for next class.

You are not bound by the story structure we began in class. It was a work in progress. Feel free to tweak, modify, change and improve the story in any way. Remember, you are writing a second-day story and you want to propel the events forward. Don't forget the 5Ws and an H, inverted pyramid, quotes, nut graf, gritty detail and descriptions (from the video?), and the ethical considerations.

You can file your story by email if you want your instructor to critique it and give you a chance to rewrite. Sphere: Related Content
