Editors must decide what makes a good story

Editors make dozens of decisions every day.  Among them: Deciding what to cover and what makes a good story. With limited resources, editors cannot cover everything going on in their communities.

In the comments section below (for the appropriate class section), answer the following questions. Describe what elements make a good story. Be specific. Recall a story you read in the news recently. Tell me briefly what the story was about. Why do you remember it? What made it stand out in your mind. How did the story affect you? Read this explanation of news values and tell me which news values you believe are most important in deciding what to cover.

This assignment is due before the start of class on Wednesday, Sept. 7.
