Homework - Wednesday, Feb. 3

Write a news story based on your interviews today with UCF police officer Jeannette Emert. Remember to pick what you thought was the best and most interesting news angle and develop that as the main thrust of your story.

You can touch on other angles by using bullet points and saying something like...

In a wide ranging interview, Emert gave the following advice OR Emert also said:

  • Don't walk alone at night on campus.
  • Keep your apartment doors locked, even if you are just going down the hall to speak to a friend.
  • Your head, hands and feet are better weapons when it comes to protection than gadgets.
  • The library attracts thieves.
  • UCF students like marijuana.

Of course if you are using one or two of these angles for the main part of your story you'll have to change the bullet points.

You can prepare for Monday's speaker - Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, by reading up on the women's suffrage movement and the 19th amendment giving women the vote. It was ratified on Aug. 26, 1920.

See you Monday.
