Ex 2: Peer Profile
One of the best ways to learn is by doing. We won't learn much about news writing unless we start writing news articles.
Length: 400 words. Submit to turnitin.com, 15 minutes before class begins. (You'll need the class ID and the password I gave out in class Friday.)
Do not simply list your questions and your peer's answers in the form of a Q & A. Use the Geist reading as a model. Tell a story, using brief quotations from at least three different sources.
What is unique and interesting about your peer? Why would anyone want to read an article about him or her?
Pay attention to:
- intensifiers (avoid simple ones like "very" or "the best/worst")
- sources (you did exchange contact information with your peer, so that you could continue your interview outside of class, right?)
