I dont know how to handle this Art & Design question and need guidance.
For this assignment, you will write a news story, as if for print or the internet, using information you will collect. This assignment will allow you to develop your interviewing skills.
Your leader must be an elected officer of a student organization, an appointed director or editor for a student publication, a member of student government, or a person with a similar responsible position. (If this were a real story, you would need at least three sources. But this assignment is designed mainly to give you experience conducting and writing about an interview.)
For general information, you might want to ask questions such as these:
What is your leadership position?
What is your greatest accomplishment related to your position?
What are the requirements for your position?
What traits must a person have to be successful in your position?
What do you hope to accomplish next as a leader?
What are your suggestions for someone who wants to be a leader?
What tips would you pass on to the leader who follows you in this position?
But your job is not done until you have found and written a story that is likely to interest most readers. Find out what problems (conflicts) the subject has faced, and how he or she resolved those problems. Get details by asking follow-up questions. Keep the reader captivated; dont put the reader to sleep.
Your job is not to do a puff piece that makes someone out to be a hero, nor is it to do a hatchet job that exposes all his flaws. Your job is to tell an honest story that serves your reader.
Follow these guidelines when writing:
Your lede should reveal something that the person said or did thats interesting or newsworthy. (Do not start by saying that the person was interviewed.)
Keep yourself entirely out of the story. Dont use I. Dont tell what the questions were unless its needed for clarity.
Keep your opinions entirely out of the story. Instead, give facts detailed facts.
Dont write in Q&A format. Instead, write a narrative with mostly your words and a few selected quotations.
Attribute everything the person said to him or her. (See the sample story in the tinted block on Page 85 of Inside Reporting.)
Put interesting details and narratives in your story. Dont put the reader to sleep. Make the story so interesting that the reader cant put it down.
Your story must:
Contain 300 to 500 words.
Use correct AP style.
Be indented and double-spaced according to the instructions you have been given.
Include at least one hyperlink. For example, you could provide a link to the website of the leader’s organization or a link to a website that the leader has found helpful in achieving his or her goals.
