Today I introduced sports writing and started off by assigning you your next story, which is due one week from today.

Next we brainstormed different ideas for what you could cover as a sports story. Don’t limit yourself to Wash teams that are in season, think about other sport related stories. For example in this last issue of the Surveyor we covered the high school hockey team, which plays out of Cedar Rapids.

Finally we ended the day looking at how Harrower says you should write sports stories and completed a worksheet over it. I also provided hard copies of two separate stories about the Insight Bowl, which the Hawks won over winter break.

If you have any questions or are struggling with writing your sports story please come in and see me anytime, I’d be happy to help.
