You will conduct a live interview of this person and complete your gripping piece! You will be focusing on digital etiquette in this assignment as you appropriately discuss the subject in your story and use Standard English to complete it. Well, what are you waiting for! Let’s get started because in the journalism world there is no time to lose in order to make deadlines!
Digital Etiquette Digital Etiquette: electronic standards of conduct or procedure. Technology users often see this area as one of the most pressing problems when dealing with Digital Citizenship. We recognize inappropriate behavior when we see it, but before people use technology they do not learn digital etiquette (i.e., appropriate conduct). Many people feel uncomfortable talking to others about their digital etiquette. Often rules and regulations are created or the technology is simply banned to stop inappropriate use. It is not enough to create rules and policy, we must teach everyone to become responsible digital citizens in this new society.
HomeTaskYou will interview and write a story about a person who falls under at least one of these requirements: Has been to an interesting place Has lived somewhere outside of the United States before Has an interesting job Has a rare exciting story to share from their life
HomeProcess You will create a page long story You will include four quotes from your notes Though you are taking notes and using your computer for this story you MUST write in complete grammatically correct sentences. Your notes may include abbreviations such as txt, omg, thankz etc. but your story will include proper digital etiquette and Standard English with the news writing style we have discussed in class. Part of digital etiquette is not stealing the ideas of others so you must write your story in your own words as you incorporate the perspective of the subject of your story. Your piece must use the format requirements from your news writing textbook.
Questions to ask yourselfbefore turning in your story… How did you use digital etiquette in your story? Did your story represent your subject accurately and with respect? Did you put your opinion in your reporting story? (The answer should be no because you are reporting an event/story) Did you use Standard English in full and complete sentences? Did you use your textbook when formatting your piece? Is your story in your own words? Did you copy any of your story from another source?
