Feature Writing

Feature Writing

Shared by: Joe Humphrey

Who are you: I teach journalism at Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Fla. I’m president of the Florida Scholastic Press Association, a member of the JEA Certification Commission and a former reporter.

Briefly describe the lesson you are sharing: This single-period lecture uses detail-rich feature writing to help students understand how intense reporting can create more memorable stories. There’s a PowerPoint with about a dozen hyperlinked stories. The big “idea” out of this is to help students think beyond simply writing “the football story” and instead fleshing out a more intense focus.

Download: Here you can download a .zip file with a Powerpoint and referenced stories.
