Journalism Day 22-Story Structure

We will be talking about story structure today. We will be working off the most straightforward story template:

lead

paragraph

quote

paragraph

quote

paragraph

quote

Every story will begin with a lead. Followed by a factual elaboration in the form of a basic paragraph. Then the pattern of QPQPQP follows to the end of the story. While slight variations can be made on this pattern, I want you to work from this on this next story to get a strong hold on the basics. 

Be thinking about what topic you want to cover in News Story 2.
