For Journalism A
This week, we will focus on practicing AP Style and the fundamentals of writing. Make sure all of your stories comply with AP Style and the other journalistic guidelines – leads, paragraph lengths, quote placement and attribution.
As always, if you are absent any day, make sure you see Mr. Wofford to pick up your prompt.
Monday, Dec. 17 : Feature Writing prompt – think feature circle. Tell a story and capture the essence of the characters/faces in your piece. Write an engaging lead.
Tuesday, Dec. 18: News Writing prompt – hook the reader and get into the Inverted Pyramid. Prioritize your facts and information.
Wednesday, Dec. 19: Editorial Writing – pick a position and defend it. Support your argument and find a solution. Remember the editorial format.
Thursday, Dec. 20: Edit, revise, finish your stories. Use this day to perfect your pieces. Always edit and revise – never turn in a first draft (unless on an urgent deadline, which your are not this week). Stories due end of class.
Friday, Dec. 21: Early Release
