At this point, you have completed your research and now it’s time for you to be the journalist and write a newspaper story of your chosen topic.
Review Ch. 5 & 6 of Reaching Audiences for insight and examples of how to write a story lead and use the inverted pyramid when writing news stories.
Prepare a summary lead of no more than 75 words based on your topic.
Write a 350- to 700-word news story about your topic using the inverted pyramid style. Be sure to include the basic news elements: who, what, where, when, why, and how in your story.
Note to student. The ability to write concisely in the inverted pyramid style is a valued skill not only in the news industry but in many public relations and communications offices.
