9th Grade Journalism
posted by Music Lover 14
Hi, this is my assignment. I did make it 30 words long but, I think it's terrible. It's very hard for me to do. Could someone please give me some suggestions as to what to change or improve please?
You must draft a lead sentence for your news story about your chosen career in journalism. Your sentence must meet the following requirements:
It must be between 20 and 30 words long.
It must address at least three of the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How.
It must not express opinion.
What: Online-journalists are people who use the electronic platform to report.
Where: An online-journalist can work anywhere from home or travel.
How: To be one, it requires a minimum 4 year degree.
You will have to use a series to do that, with commas and connectors such as "and" or "or" or "nor".
here are two of todays examples from the NY Times.
<<The news channel RT has been called the Kremlin’s “principal international propaganda outlet,” and its embrace of YouTube is under scrutiny in the inquiry into interference in the 2016 election.>>
<<President Trump renewed his attacks on Senator Bob Corker shortly after Mr. Corker said the White House should “step aside” and leave tax legislation to Congress.>>
