Reminders and Recap 2/24

Keep in mind the following things (Reminders);

– don’t make paragraphs too many sentences

– AP Style

– Always include a headline

– Quotes are their own paragraph


Writing a lead – find the focus, tells the reader most important part of story

Reporters should ask questions before writing – WHAT was unique or more important? WHO was involved, or said it, or did it

Must Contain – specific info about what happened, when the event occurred, location of event, source of the info

Keep the lead short (30-35 words) – LEAD –> QUOTE –> BACKROUND
