We finished going through the feature story PowerPoint from yesterday, and I had you work to identify the type of feature the professional article you brought in today would be, along with having you jot down a few more key ideas before I checked your feature notes in for points.
Afterwards, I gave you a few handouts for future reference concerning features and leads (all of which can be found in our collaborative folder). Next, we began the transition from identifying types of features and their anecdotal, narrative, etc. leads in our sample articles to how we use the 5 Ws and H to construct a news story lead and bridge. We will continue this work tomorrow concerning lead and bridge writing, inverted pyramid structure, etc.
