Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Accuracy Exercise

Accuracy Exercise

This is a two-part exercise, but it's pretty straightforward.  First, you will each individually spend 15 minutes writing up a brief but detailed story about what you consider to be the craziest and/or stupidest thing you did during your high school years and the consequences you faced.  Be sure to include as much detail as you can remember (embarrassing or not).  When it's finished, you will email it to me at  

THEN, you will pair off into the groups below (subject to slight changes, depending on any absences today).  Within the group, you will then interview each other about that same incident, without consulting the story or any notes from Part 1.  You will then, between now and the beginning of Thursday's class, write up a brief story about the crazy/stupid thing your partner did in high school, and email it to me.  I will then compare the two versions of the stories for accuracy.
