PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this age of convergent media, student journalists must understand the distinction between writing for print and writing for broadcast, and why those differences exist.

This SET OF TWO LESSON PLANS includes 49 PAGES of material and is versatile enough to be adapted for 2 – 4 class periods of 50 minutes each (depending on class size)

49 PAGES of material include:
• Detailed lecture notes
• Detailed overhead notes with student review exercises and answer keys
• Handout/resource comparing print and broadcast news writing
• Worksheets with answer keys
• Formative assessment- Comparison/contrast short paper assignment
• Summative assessment/broadcast scriptwriting assignment

This comprehensive set of materials will provide beginning broadcast journalists with an introduction to the basics of writing copy for studio-based radio and television news reports by reviewing the need for accuracy, brevity, and clarity in the writing. Materials teach journalism’s 4-step Information Management process; how to attribute to sources in broadcast stories; and how to employ basic grammar and syntax rules to make writing clear and conversational.

The ultimate goal is to generate broadcast script copy that is easy for news anchors to read and recite, as well as easy for audiences to hear and comprehend.
