News Writing — Where does it appear and how do I do it?

Today we will:

  • Discuss news of the day
  • Hear three news checks
  • Discuss Assignment 2 — News story
  • Discuss first class speaker (Tuesday, Sept. 23)
  • Work on quote and note taking and framing a story


  • NO CLASS SEPT. 25 — the assignment on the speaker will be due Tues. Sept. 30
  • Recording of speaker is fine
  • I can meet Monday 11:30-1:30 in my office with anyone who needs help with Explainer
