Writing Articles for News Media. Self-Paced Instructional Module. Module Number II-B.
One of 33 self-paced instructional modules for training industry services leaders to provide guidance in the performance of manpower services by public agencies to new and expanding private industry, this module contains three sequential learning activities on writing news articles about industry training activities. (Three of the other modules deal with other tasks also required for establishing contacts and relationships: Speaking to industrial and community groups, identifying functions of agencies involved in industry services, and developing an industry services brochure.) The first learning activity is designed to provide the learner with the needed background information, the second to give opportunity to apply that information in a practice situation, and the final check-out activity allows him to write news articles in a real work situation where he is employed or when serving as an intern learner. A learner self-test is included for help in determining when each objective is accomplished, and a performance checklist is appended for use by the learner and instructor/supervisor to assess progress. Sample news articles and an article planning worksheet are also appended for guidance in performing the learning activities. (JT)
