Today we started by going over a handout about basic journalism style. Then I talked briefly about the difference between hard and soft news (hard= information people need to know, life or death type of matters; soft= information that people might be interested in, but not a need to know idea.) Then I handed out your news story assignment, which will be due a week from Monday. Finally we had some time to brainstorm in our groups about different news stories that we could write. Below are the notes I took on the smartboard about chapter three in the Harrower textbook.
