Product Description
Reporting Practice Assignment Teacher Notes:

This is an excellent activity for students to practice interviewing techniques, to write effective leads, and to write straight news stories.
Here are some of the directions:

Students: For this assignment, you will take on two different roles: that of a reporter writing an accurate story relating the event in question, and then that of a person to be interviewed for a scenario( this must be different from the one that you are writing). If you are a reporter one day, you will be a person in a scenario the next day, and vice versa.

Person to be interviewed:
You will receive a piece of paper that explains the role that you are playing. You will meet with the other people in this scenario and will create a story line based on the scenario fact sheet. As a group, you will come up with specific facts that happened during the incident to be used later when you are being interviewed. You will also need to make-up biographical and/or work-related information about yourself. In some of the scenarios, you will have to decide whose side you will take in the conflict.

Reporter:
You will interview the people involved with the story in order to obtain the facts for your article. You will conduct interviews with these people and write a factual news story. Reporters: ask the person that you are interviewing to create a list of:
what he/she witnessed
what he/she is working on to solve the case
what he/she experienced
what he/she knows
his/her biographical information

The format and context criteria, as well as all 7 scenarios are included in the complete product.
