News Stories

All news stories should be completed by now and ready to be placed into Indesign. There are two tasks to complete.

Go to Sharepoint and navigate to the Media Studies Folder. There is a page called Templates. You will find three Indesign templates on this page. You can use this link

Task 1: The first template is for you to arrange your news story in the space provided. You will need to change the font to the assignment specifications distributed to you in class for the news story.  When you have completed this task you are to upload it to your blog. You must upload it as a pdf.

Task 2: Download either template 3 or 4. These templages contain a two page spread. You are to create a newspaper using the media class news stories that other students have written. You will need to go to each students blog and pick out the stories you want to use. Then using the template you will need to find ways to present these stories. This might mean some stories have to be edited to fit the space provided. You might only use 3 or 4 stories or you might use all the student stories.  Since everyone will have uploaded their Indesign pages already you will only have to cut and paste into the new template. How you arrange the stories is up to you.

You will need to complete these tasks by the conclusion of the media class on Friday. Failure to meet deadlines will result in a Z. This means if you haven’t finished your own news story which should have been completed last Friday then you will have to complete it tonight. There are no extensions for this task.
