Thinking about your individual story assignment

You’ll spend some time this week thinking about your idea for the individual story assignment. There a ton of resources in the IS tab on the top bar, so be sure to read through all of those materials. You’ll want to pitch your idea in this spreadsheet.

If it’s helpful, here’s a link to a copy of the worksheet you filled out in class with my story idea of how students use social media to get jobs. It should help you take your idea from a topic to a story.

Remember that it’s first come, first served with an idea, so log your name and pitch when you have it together. Also, we ask that you not write about something you’re too closely involved in — for example, if you work at the Nitty Gritty, it would be too close for you to pitch a history of the restaurant if you work there.

Questions? You know where to find me!
