Please click on the Assignments tab at the top of this page — that will take you to the list of potential assignments for this class.
For this week’s assignment, which is due by 6 p.m. Saturday, please complete Leads #1 and Leads #2 and post them on your blog. Please post each assignment separately, using the name of the assignment (e.g. Leads#1) as the headline of your blog post so I can easily find it. Reading Chapter 3, Newswriting Basics, in our text will help you with these assignments. In particular, read pages 36-41.
Also, please note that your first “Top News” assignment is due this Saturday as well. Follow the “Top News” link on the Assignments page for a description of this assignment.
I will email you the short AP style exercise tonight (after I finish writing it!), and I’ll try to get next week’s assignments posted over the weekend, so you have more lead time from here on out.
