NewsU tutorial

1) Why is proper attribution so important?

Proper attribution is important because it gives credit to the author of the work and allows readers to follow up on the legitimacy of the story and where the sources are from.

2) What is a primary source and why is it important?

A primary source is a person that is closest to the material being studied or needed, and they are important because s/he gives a first-hand accurate account of the information.

3) Which story building block makes the most sense to you and why?

A story wouldn’t be a story without all the building blocks. You need the invite to lead into the story and to inform the reader why this story is news. Then you need to illuminate to give the reader a clearer picture of the story, and finally to connect to your reader with a nut graph, so as to entice the reader to read YOUR story.
