Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Accuracy Exercise 2

Accuracy in Editing Exercise

This is a two-part exercise across two class meetings, one of several throughout the semester.  First, you will each individually go out on campus and look for a story idea about an element of SJSU that the average student wouldn't know about, then write up a 500-word story about it.  Second, in the next class meeting, you will get together with your assigned partner (see below), exchange stories and edit them for grammar, spelling and content, then submit that edited version to me by the end of class.

At the top of your submission, be sure to include "Story by (____), Edited by (_____)," so it's clear who wrote the initial story and who edited it into its final version.  When it's all finished, you will email it to me at
