W4 Prac continued: They will make a journalist out of me yet

This week we were asked to write our first piece in a journalistic style. I learnt a valuable lesson – talk to people for longer than three minutes!

I found this exercise challenging because I had limited material to work with. My two interviewees were a little shy so it was hard to get information from them. In turn, I ended up with not a lot of useable information from them.

In reality – the story I wrote really wasn’t news and had this been the real world I would have needed to move and find another topic. This was a good exercise though – I’m feeling a little more prepared for assessment two.

  1. Hi Hilary,
    I think you did a great job with your article. It was an interesting read and you filled it in nicely with writing about the dog breeds at the bottom and also pointing out what the dogs are good for and how they are with children and families.
    If you had limited material, I think you did well to write what you did. I had the same problem with my own article, except I am the shy one so doesn’t make for a good interviewer!
    Good work.
