Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Story Ideas Exercise

Story Ideas Exercise

Within your group, go out on campus and find three ideas you believe could make interesting news stories for student media.  For this exercise I ask that you avoid profiles – look for stories on issues or events relating to student life in some way.  

For each of these three story ideas, please write up:

Within your group, brainstorm different ideas and approaches to each story.  If you come up with more than three appealing story topics, you must collectively choose the three strongest ones.  Write up all of this and email it to me by Friday at midnight (I don't want to disrupt your weekend).
