Assignment 2 info

Now that you’ve gotten your feet wet with an in-class assignment, let’s try an event story on your own. Here is the assignment two prompt and rubric, due Tuesday, April 4, at the beginning of class. If you have edits to turn in from the first assignment, turn those in, too.

Some potential pitfalls:

  • Don’t be too promotional – remember, it is your job to give the information, not to encourage people to attend
  • Think about good quotes versus bad quotes
  • The information in the online press release may not be entirely in AP style. Make sure you’re checking everything.

Remember to get your project ideas in ASAP and read chapter 5 (Sources & Online Resources).
