IN-CLASS INTERVIEW: LOCAL NEWS
We conduct the second of two interviews with distinguished journalists. This week's interview subject: Norman Robinson.
Afterwards, we'll discuss the interview's strengths and weaknesses and also how to do next week's assignment: three pitches for an original investigative story.
WK 10 DETAIL
INTERVIEW #2 ASSIGNMENTS
WK 10 Homework Tools
Write three one-paragraph pitches for investigative articles. All three pitches must fit the four-part definition of an investigative story, and all three pitches must be related in some way to materials or topics we've covered in this class. That can include any of the following:
If you're not sure whether one of your pitches fits the assignment, or if you're having trouble coming up with three pitches...Slack me! I'll help you brainstorm.
You’ll read all three pitches to the class next week, and we’ll give you feedback to help you decide which pitch to turn into an article which will be due on the last day of class and which will be your final assignment in the class.
Again, you do NOT have to write an article for next week, but you do have to write three pitches, turn them in on Brightspace, and read all three of them to the class.
