A Design for a Basic News Report Course.
Zima, William J.; And Others
The authors of this report were responsible for developing a new course in basic news reporting at the University of Iowa. In the report they discuss a breakdown of the news gathering process and the conceptual plan that resulted from the breakdown, teaching objectives and strategies, and specific methods used to implement the strategies. Students were given assignments based on the authors' conception of the process of news reporting: (1) identifying information sources; (2) contacting sources; (3) eliciting information from them; (4) processing the information into print or broadcast media; and (5) exposing the information to the general public.
