Using the scenario, write a news story for print publication using inverted-pyramid style. Begin your story with a summary news lead of no more than 20 words and one sentence. Use an active voice, past tense verb.
Your story should follow all of the rules you’ve learned so far about organizing a news story in inverted pyramid style. You should stack your news from most important general information to the least important specific information. Make sure your paragraphs are no more than one or two short sentences each. Use transitions to advance the story. Follow all the relevant rules in the Course AP Stylebook.
Stick to the essentials. A story of 200-250 words may not be enough; one double that may be too much.
Once you have drafted your story, think about how you would want to present it as an online news story. How would it need to be changed? What kinds of links would you use? Tell us what you would do differently or would add to the story and why! Look at Packaging News Online material and experiment with hyperlinking!
