ARTICLES: ROUGH DRAFTS
This week, we workshop the rough drafts of everybody's articles.
1) Writers on the table wait to talk until all editors have finished.
2) Editors should first consider: what is the writer's intention?
3) Editors should point out the strongest aspects of each article.
4) Editors should point out elements of each article that are unclear or distracting.

WK 14 Homework & Tools
Follow the steps below to create your final, fact-checked article.
1: Consider the class's feedback. What aspects of your article confused the class? What resonated with the class?
2: Consider what is the central question of your article and whether you've clearly addressed it. If not, write another draft that does.
3: When you're happy with your article, footnote EVERY claim you make in it, no matter how obvious or simple, and cite at least one solid source for each footnote (if you were publishing this article, you'd need at least two sources for every claim). Below is the fact-checked script for "Unsafe Diagnosis," the 60 Minutes piece we screened in Week 2.
