Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Story Ideas Exercise
Story Ideas Exercise, Part II
In your last assignment, you were told to go out on campus and find ideas for interesting news stories for student media. For Part II, you will take another group's ideas, choose one, then write up a story and sidebar using the guidelines the other students have provided. Click on your name below and it will lead you to the stories from which you will choose.
You are not required to adhere strictly to their story angles or suggestions -- just use them as a beginning point for putting together an interesting story package. If you want to drastically change the main story topic, please email me and tell me why you want to do it.
The main story should be a minimum of 500 words; the sidebar should be a minimum of 300 words. You can divide the labor however you like, but you all will be graded on the entire package, so each of you should go over your fellow group members' work before you turn it in.
Since I will be gone on Thursday, you will have a week to get this done. It will be due by the beginning of class next Tuesday, April 23.
