Preparing and editorial and developing your opinion

For Journalism A


Assignment – Wednesday, Nov. 28

Think of an issue or topic that is important to you. It can be anything that is school appropriate, such as today’s music vs. music of the past, impact of social media on privacy, difficulty of school today vs. difficulty of school for previous generations, benefits of small learning communities such as EMAC – anything where there is two sides of the issue. But this is just a few examples. If you like skateboarding, think of an issue involving skateboarding. If you like to read or watch TV, think of issues involving books for television. It’s up to you.

Read the previous Editorial Format post. Once you have picked your topic, begin to formulate your editorial using this outline. You can fill in the information on a Word document – at this point, it does not have to be in paragraph form. Just be specific with our ideas (lots and lots of details) as your formulate your position and argument. Be sure to include all elements listed in the Editorial Format.

We’ll discuss and review in class on Thursday. Save in the appropriate folder on the s-share. Good luck!
