A News Game Called TRIO: A Task for Reporting, Interviewing and Observing.
Talbott, Albert D.; And Others
The reason for creating the Task for Reporting, Interviewing, and Observing (TRIO) was to make selective perception and metaphoric transformation come alive for students. This paper includes the experiences in designing, implementing, and trying out the exercise, a description of the exercise, a summary of the participants' play, and suggestions and recommendations on how the exercise can be used in similar and other kinds of settings. TRIO allows students to play various roles in reporting, being reported on, and news report evaluating. The exercise includes nursing students as specialists who present the pros and cons of abortion to another group of nurses. The presentation is covered by journalism students who write up news reports of the event for a lay audience. Groups of reporters cover the event under differing conditions, including second-hand and third-hand reporting. Afterward the lay audience, the reporters, and the specialists evaluate the coverage and prizes are awarded for the best stories. A give-and-take discussion is held a week after the event for all the participants. (Also included are selected bibliographies on gaming and simulations.) (Author/RB)
