ASNE Arizona Day 2

I learned a lot today.  The best parts have been a great technique called Story Mapping for brainstorming – or drilling down to a great idea from a weak one.  First Five Graphs – making sure that your students put the 5 Ws and H plus who cares, how does it affect me and a quote in the first five minutes.  We also did a great Mock Interview.  This is something I think I will try with my kids using my editors as the people who get interviewed and my new reporters will interview them.  I think we will also role play interviewing to help them get their “sea legs.”  And we got our story ideas today too.  I volunteered to be a Team Leader, which is like an asst. editor.

It was 112 Degrees today in Arizona – the hottest temperature I’ve ever felt.  Wow.
