Here is the scenario: You are an intern for the Purdue News Service. You have been asked to write a news service story about new research by a Purdue faculty member. You will do this assignment on your WordPress account and submit the URL to Brightspace.
(link for the example, https://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/releases/2020/Q2/does-mommy-brain-last-study-shows-motherhood-does-not-diminish-attention.html)
Here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMkuSOf1F4E to an “interview” you conducted with Eric Wiemer, a Ph.D. student in the Brian Lamb School of Communication, about a research project he helped conduct that was recently published. The project was headed by Assistant Professor Jennifer Hoewe, also of the Brian Lamb School. Wiemer is one of the co-authors on the publication.
- You do not need to do additional interviewing. You must write the article based on Wiemer’s interview.
- Include all elements of an effective news service story that we talked about in class.
- Adhere to rules that we discussed in class (length, organization, headline rules, etc.)
- Use proper formatting.
- Adhere to AP style, quote rules and use correct grammar and spelling.
- Be professional
