As discussed in class, your assignment is to write a local news piece on a topic of your choosing. You must have 2 sources you are linking to. Consider also getting a comment from an outside source (ex: ask someone their thoughts on the topic). Your piece must be timely, accurate, and well written. Remember, a hard news story needs to have a factual approach. Answer the questions: What happened? Who was involved? Where and when did it happen? Why? Consider the tone you are writing in.
There is no word limit on this assignment, instead I am looking for you to meet all the other requirements. Content matters! Use your resources. I have provided a list of links to help you find some local topics you want to write about. DO NOT copy a news sites content. That is plagiarism. That would get you fired! Reference them, link to them, quote and cite them, but write in your own words
As appropriate use the AP Style Cheat Sheet.
