Journalism 133: Prof. Craig: Working With Reporters, Part 2

Working With Reporters. Part 2

For the previous assignment, you were designated as either reporter or editor.  For Part 2, you will switch roles and have new partners (see below).

This time, rather than taking a national/international story and giving it a local angle, you will flip the assignment somewhat.  You will work together to develop a story based on a local topic that you collectively believe deserves more attention outside our area.  The local topic can be specific to SJSU, to San Jose or to the South Bay region. 

Because of the Veterans Day holiday on Wednesday, you will need to come up with an idea in today's class.  You will meet in your assigned groups until 11 a.m., then present your story ideas to the class.  I will remain on the Zoom call while you work in case you have questions. 

The assignment will be due a week from today (Monday, Nov. 16) at the beginning of class.  The parameters will remain the same -- a minimum of 750 words and three interviews.
