The stories should be in a file format compatible with Microsoft Word, such as .doc, .docx., .rtf or .txt. The multimedia submission could be an attached file or a link to a website, YouTube video, SoundCloud audio file, etc. Do not imbed the multimedia in the same file as your main story or sidebar.

Put your name on each item, and label one story as the main story and the other as the sidebar. Indent paragraphs and double-space, using the software settings we have discussed in class.

Final Reporting Project Guidelines

The project in JRN 2201 allows you to showcase the writing and reporting skills learned this term in your Reporting class. You will be responsible for enterprising, researching and writing a two-part package of news stories relating to a single theme.

For this project, you will create three items:

  1. A main story (800 to 1,000 words, including at least two hyperlinks)
  2. A sidebar (400 to 500 words, including at least two hyperlinks)
  3. A multimedia element such as a photo gallery, chart, informational graphic, audio file or video.

The topic can be local, state, national or international — but you must talk to people who can provide authoritative information, so be sure to pick a topic for which such sources will be available. Talk to as many sources as are necessary to give you two complete, fair and balanced stories — probably six or more sources for your main story and three or more sources for your sidebar.

Your hypothetical audience for the whole project is the students who read the Tropolitan.

You could have a main story about an issue or a situation and a human-interest sidebar, in which you focus on a particular person or a small group of people deeply affected by the main story. Or the people might be your main story, with the sidebar describing the general situation. (As you collect information, you may find that what you intended to be the sidebar would be better as the main story. That's usually OK. Just get the professor’s approval.)

Previous successful ideas include:

_ Financial aid — how to get it, and one student's triumph over the system

_ Credit cards — why so many solicitations, and one student’s struggle with debt

_ Parking — why university officials say you need to just stop whining and walk that hundred yards, and how one student found the rules expensive to ignore.

The multimedia element cannot be something you found on the internet or elsewhere. It must be something you created yourself. A single photograph is not sufficient, although a gallery or PowerPoint presentation of five or six original photos will be fine. You must include captions and/or other text necessary to make your photos, videos, audio or other materials understandable to the reader.

Your final project must be of publishable quality. In fact, publication in a recognized publication will earn you extra credit for this course.

Drafts for this final project must be submitted at least a week in advance, if you plan to submit a draft - so plan accordingly.

Grading will be based on criteria including the following:

_ Ledes

_ Content

_ Adequate information

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic among college and university education.
Since the outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus, in late November 2019, college officials,
healthcare advocacy teams, lawmakers, and the university practitioners have become more
worried about the rising cases on the spread of the coronavirus. The recent statistics show that
the number of people diagnosed with the coronavirus is quite high, and the numbers are expected
to go up in the coming couple of days. Since the breaking of the epidemic, most of the states
have taken the necessary precautionary measures to stop the spread of the virus since it is
associated with social contacts by closing down schools, banning of social gatherings, and
shutting of some of the key economic activities (Tao et al., 2020). The impact of the deadly virus
is like to bring down the global higher education system as most of the state advocating for
pharmaceutical measures of social distancing.
According to Dr. James Mackay, a senior associate professor at Troy University, said that
the university's top priority at this period is to protect the university fraternity from the dangers
that are posed by the deadly virus. The university fraternity involves the student, university staff,
faculty, and the immediate staff to the university. He said, "this is a critical situation that
threatens human civilization. Any steps that we take will determine our future success. The
university is fighting hard now to protect everyone from the virus. The war against the virus will
be won, and life will move on".
Nevertheless, there are too many concerns among students that the epidemic effect may
go beyond the 2020-21 academic ...
