PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This media project complements broadcast journalism courses or feature writing units.

The primary objective of this project is for students to produce a feature segment on an extracurricular club of their choice, which may then be used by the school for promotional purposes.

This project reinforces the principles of quality interviewing skills, as well as organization and prioritization of details using the inverted pyramid technique. Further, it promotes the conventions of broadcast writing.

This .zip file contains all the materials I use for this project. The items are .docx files for easy editing.

Included are:

1. A project description.

2. Brainstorming materials designed to maximize student learning about their chosen club (functionally speaking, a KWL).

3. A document on which students jot down open-ended questions to ask an interviewee, plus a reflective piece to ensure students have written quality questions.

4. A prewriting document designed to help students discern vital information from lesser information, aligned to the inverted pyramid concept.

5. An exemplar script modeling the conventions of writing for broadcast, plus instructions for how to write for broadcast.

6. An evaluation rubric.
