Project #26243 - Journalism

There are five mini assignments, each one includes making one lead sentence that captures all the important details for newsworthy information. The professor is hard on students, he is easy to give F's. So please only consider this assignment if you are well informed in Journalism. 

#1:ASSIGNMENT #1 “Record Weather” (Text pg. 125) One (lead) paragraph only.

As always, you should pay particular attention (‘cause I will)  to accuracy, spelling, Associated Press style, correct handling of direct quotes, attribution — and your lead paragraph had better be easy to read, one sentence in length and under 25 words in length.


Please place your NAME on what you submit.
