Today we workshopped the drafts of the feature stories that were ready. We went around saying what was good and what could be improved on for each story.

After the workshop I split the class in half and everyone completed a current events quiz in their group.

Below are a couple examples of feature stories from the New York Times:

Example one, no boys prom: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/02/us/hamtramck-high-holds-all-girl-prom.html?_r=1&emc=eta1&pagewanted=all
Example two, homophobic homosexuals: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/29/opinion/sunday/homophobic-maybe-youre-gay.html?emc=eta1
